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.
If you are moving into our area, please contact the office or the county admissions team. They will then let you know whether places are available or whether you need to join our waiting list.County Admissions Team Children’s Services Department The Castle Winchester Hampshire SO23 8UG
