Each school has its own admission policy which is set in line with Hampshire County Council’s policy and timetable. Our admissions policy can be found on our policy page.
My child is starting school in September 2024
There are set dates for making an application so that your child can join us in September 2024. Applications open on 1 November 2023 and close at Midnight on Monday 15th January 2024. The national notification date for on-time applicants is 16 April 2024.
The County Council will consider first all those applications received by the published deadline of midnight on Sunday 15 January 2024. Notifications to parents offering a primary or infant school place will be sent by the County Council on 30 April 2024. Applications made after midnight on 15 January 2024 will be considered after all on-time applications have been fully processed unless exceptional circumstances merit consideration alongside on-time applications. For the normal admission round, all on time preferences will be considered simultaneously and ranked in accordance with the admission criteria. If more than one school can offer a place, the parent’s highest stated available preference will be allocated.
To make a late application, please see the County website:
