Admission to our School

Most children start school full-time in September after they turn 4.

If you do not think your child is ready to start school by then, they can start part-way through the year or attend part-time - as long as they are in full-time education by the time they reach ‘compulsory school age’.

Compulsory School Age is on 31 December, 31 March or 31 August following their fifth birthday  - whichever comes first.

If you have a child born between 1st September 2016 and 31st August 2017 you can apply for a place in our school via Lincolnshire County Council’s School Admissions. If you are successful your child will start school in September 2021.

  • primary school admissions open on 16 November 2020 and close 15 January 2021
  • re-opens 17 April 2021 and closes 17 May 2021

You will be notified on the 16th of April 2021or later if you applied in the second round.
