In Year Admissions

In the case of older children for whom application is made to join the school in other year groups, admission will be on the basis of places being available in the relevant year group. We have a Pupil Admission Number (PAN) of 30 children per year group. If there are more applicants than there are places available, the relevant admissions criteria will apply. All ‘In Year’ applications will be managed by the school, but a Supplementary Information Form (see below) is still requested along with an In Year application, which must be resubmitted every September. The In Year application form can be completed at: –
