We are happy to arrange tours for parents looking for a reception place in the following academic year or for parents who are looking for a mid year application.


Application process - Reception


The application process for applying for a Reception place for the following September typically opens during the first week of November.


The deadline is typically the 15th January.  Applications received after this date are considered late and will reduce your chance of being offered a place at your preferred schools.


This process is managed centrally by the local authorities - to apply for a school place you need to use the online application process for the county in which you reside – links to their websites are as shown below:


Essex School Application process

Cambridgeshire School Application Process

Hertfordshire School Application Process


National Offer Day (the day on which parents are informed of the primary school places offered) is 16 April or the next working day should that fall on a weekend/bank holiday.


Application Process - mid year


Mid-year applications (sometimes called in-year applications) are any application for a school place made to a year group, apart from September admissions to Reception.


For applications into existing year groups, a place will be offered when the number of pupils in the relevant year group is below the admission number for that year group.


Please note: if a mid-year application is received during a school holiday period, we will respond as soon as possible when the school reopens.


If you would like apply for a place to move your child to our school during the school year, please complete the following application form and send it directly to the school ether by post or
