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.

Admissions 2020

At Lent Rise School we are aware that there is likely to be pressure on places for 2020 admission next year. With this in mind, you are strongly encouraged to make use of all six preferences options available to you and in order to increase your chance of being allocated a place at a local school, whilst you are free to express a preference for any school they want for their child,  you are advised to consider including all your nearest schools.  You are also reminded to  list their preferences in the order you would like them to be considered.

Lent Rise School did take an additional class creating a 'bulge year' in 2015, taking three classes that year,  but please be aware that our planned admission number is 60 (two classes of thirty).  The Local Authority will consider additional bulge classes if this is significant need across an area.
