Before deciding to register your child we strongly recommend that you come and visit the school for yourself.
If your child is due to start school, you will probably see notices around local shops, Pre-Schools and the library telling you to contact your catchment area school. Hampshire Local Education Authority forms may be collected from the school office if you live within our catchment area. Applications can also be made on-line at www.hants.gov.uk/admissions.
Open Days for September 2022 New Entrants
Parents are invited to join us for one of our Open Morning/Afternoon sessions during the Autumn term. Due to some Covid restrictions still being in place, we will need to limit numbers, and so we ask that only one parent attend a session. We will not be able to accommodate any children at this time. The visit will take the form of a short talk from the Head of School, Mrs Jayne Fahey, followed by an outside tour and an inside view of some of our classrooms. To book, please call the School Office on 01794 340407 or email email@example.com.
