Please be aware that the regulations under Section I of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998 limit the size of an infant class (a class in which the majority of children will reach the age of 5, 6 or 7 during the school year) to 30 pupils per class teacher.  Admissions over this limit are only permitted in very limited circumstances.

Please contact the Academy office on 01733 343895 if you have any queries regarding your child’s admission or to arrange a visit to look round the Academy.

If your child is offered a place with us to start in Reception, we will invite you to an information evening and also offer you and your child the chance to come into school and meet the staff during the summer term before starting in the September. Staff also like to carry out home visits before children start at the Academy to allow teachers and parents to talk in confidence and to also begin to build relationships with the child and their family.
