Joining Reception in September: Transition Information

We aim to provide a smooth transition for every child. Whether they are joining us from another setting, or have been at home with you, we want to ensure they feel happy, safe and secure with us. We provide a range of transition activities for our new starters to allow them to ease into school life and settle with us. 

In-Year Admissions: Reception, Year 1 and Year 2

An 'in year admission' is when a child already attends a school but wishes to transfer to another school outside of the usual transfer time, for example because the child is moving to a new address. These transfers can take place during the academic year. For further information and to make an in-year admission application, please use the following link: In-Year Admission.
