Children born between 1st September 2016 and 31st August 2017 start school in September 2021.

Parents will need to apply online for a place for their child via Kingston Council using the eAdmissions website from 1st September :

Parents can name up to six schools in their application.

The closing date for applications is 15th January 2021.

Due to the current situation with COVID-19 it is unlikely we will be able to invite parents in to the school for an open event. Instead we will be posting a video giving a virtual tour of the school in the near future. We are also hoping to host online google meetings where parents will be able to meet the Headteacher and see a short presentation from the Early Years Leader. Parents will have an opportunity to ask questions during these meetings.

The online open events will be held on the following dates (to be confirmed):

Wednesday 4th November - 9.15-10.00

Wednesday 11th November - 9.15-10.00

Wednesday 25th November - 9.15-10.00

The dates will be firmed up shortly and parents will be able to sign up to attend the date of their choice.

A meeting code will be published nearer the time.
