School Admissions

Buckinghamshire County Council is responsible for all admissions decisions. Planned admission numbers are set at 60 new pupils each September for Early Years (Reception Class). In September 2015, the school took an additional 30 pupils into the Reception year, creating a ‘bulge’ class. All pupils attend full time.

Our admissions criterior is currently set by Buckinghamshire County Council and you can find out more information by visiting the school admissions section of the Buckinghamshire County Council website. Parents are not able to apply for a place directly through the school.
