Stage 1 - Enquiry


We hope you will find all the information you need on these pages. Our Registrar, Mrs Alison Westbrook, is also available to help with any questions you may have.

Our main intake is into our Early Years classes of Nursery (3+) and Reception (4+), however there may be opportunities to join other year groups, up to and including Year 6, when occasional places become available.

The ideal way to get to know us is at one of our Open Mornings or on an individual visit with our Registrar.

Reception - Once registered, we will invite you to join us for an opportunity to get to know us better at Pufflings, our parent and toddler group that meets weekly. In January, all registered children are invited to attend a session where the teachers will assess communication and language skills, confidence in undertaking tasks, interaction and social skills as well as their levels of concentration and co-operation.

Year 1 upwards - We invite all children registered for other year groups in to school to meet our staff and pupils and to complete standardised assessments in English, maths, verbal and non-verbal reasoning.  Please contact us for further information.

Stage 4 - Offers and welcome
