Reception 2022

If your child is due to start school in September 2022 you are warmly invited to our Open Mornings.  These will be taking place on the following dates and we anticipate your visit finishing at 11am:
Thursday 25th November 9.30am
Tuesday 30th November 9.30am

 We very much hope these will be able to take place in person, but should the need arise due to the impact of Coronavirus, they will be held virtually.  This visit is aimed at parents rather than children as there will be opportunities for children joining us to visit the school later in the year,  
Please call the school on 01799 523651 to book a slot or email Wendy on

Applications for Reception 2022 open on 8th November 2021 and the national deadline is 15th January 2022.
