We admit children into our Foundation classes full time in the Autumn term.  Due to COVID-19, we are unable to show you around the school at present.  Please have a look at our virtual tour and if you have any questions, you can either  contact the school office either by email ( or by phone (0116 2867738).

Information about our admissions policy can be found here:


The LA controls admission to all County schools, but we usually are able to offer a place to all children who live locally and normally accept a few children who live further away. All parents must request a place at our school. Please apply online at:


If your application is successful you will receive an email or written confirmation from the LA and then an invitation from us to a welcome meeting in June.


If your child is already school age, then the process is similar but usually much quicker. We can admit up to 45 children in any year group, and if we have space we will be pleased to offer your child a place when you have completed the appropriate forms.


As part of our admission procedures we will need to see an original birth certificate which will be scanned and held electronically as part of our records on your child. This will be used to determine parental responsibility. If there are additional documents pertaining to parental responsibility such as court orders or agreements then it is your responsibility to produce these for us to copy and hold.

Admission to our pre-school is managed separately. Children are admitted in date of birth order. Please call 0116 2867738 to speak to Louise Mullen, the pre-school leader, about adding your child to the waiting list.
