Cambridgeshire Local Education Authority (LEA) is responsible for setting the admissions policy criteria for this school. Parents wishing to apply for a Reception place for their child can apply on-line using the link below or you may contact the school for an admission form.

Paper copies of forms should be completed and returned via the school. Parents will be informed in April/May time whether a place is available for their child. Please contact the school or admissions team for dates. 

Parents new to the area who wish to see the school during the day should telephone: 01223 712273 to make an appointment.

We are always pleased to see parents and welcome the chance to talk with you. We see teachers and parents as equal partners, working together to enable all children to reach their potential.
