All children starting school will attend full-time from the beginning of the Autumn term. Children are not legally required to attend school until the term after their fifth birthday.

Determined Admission Arrangements Voluntary Controlled Community Primary schools 2023-24

As a Voluntary Controlled School our admissions are controlled by Wiltshire Council. Further details of the admission procedure to our school (Reception or in year transfer) if you live in Wiltshire can be found by clicking on the following link – Wiltshire Primary Schools Admissions Procedure.

If you do not live in Wiltshire and want to apply for a Reception place at a  Wiltshire school, you must make an application to your own local authority. They will then pass on your application details to us. You will not be able to use the Wiltshire online application system or Wiltshire’s common paper application form. The only exception to this would be applications from children of UK service personnel and also in year transfers.

If you are making an in year transfer application you may do so using the following link:
