Reception to Year 6 Admissions

Information on admissions to Reception in September 2024

Children may start school in the academic year after they turn 4 years of age. If your child was born between 1 September 2019 and 31 August 2020, he or she will be eligible to apply for a place in Reception in September 2024.


Children will start school in September in the Reception classes, although this will initially be for a shortened day. The school has 90 places available which are divided into 3 balanced classes of 30 children. Please let us know when you accept your child's place if there are any factors that you wish us to take into account when arranging the classes. We will consider all requests but cannot guarantee to meet them.


An application for admission can be made online at Applying for a primary school place (on the Sutton Local Authority website). Online applications are recommended and can be made now.

For full information about admissions arrangements, see School admissions (on the Sutton Local Authority website).


Please note that you must still apply for a place for entry into the school if your child has a place in the Nursery. No priority is given to children who are in the Nursery.


The application must be completed and submitted by the closing date. This is 15 January 2024.

Sutton Local Authority is responsible for dealing with the waiting list for entry into Reception. After the waiting list is closed, a new mid-term application must be completed to apply for a place.


For entry into the school other than into Reception in September as described above, please see below.

If you require further advice please contact the school or the admissions team at Sutton Local Authority (020 8770 5000) or


Please contact the school if you have any questions or if you would like to visit. The Headteacher gives regular tours of the school and to be included on one of these tours, please telephone the school office.


Other admissions to the school

For details of admission to the school at any time other than into Reception in September as described above, see Mid-term or in-year admissions (on Sutton Local Authority website). If a place at the school becomes available in a year group for which there is a waiting list, it will be offered to the child who is at the top of the waiting list determined in accordance with the criteria for admissions set by Sutton Local Authority.
