Admission to Reception Class
Children are normally admitted to the reception class at the beginning of the academic year in which they are five.

The online application process opens in the September prior to a child starting school and all online applications must be submitted before the 15th January. LCC will then send out notification letters to parents in April. Any pupils who are not happy with their offer may appeal, full details are provided by LCC.

Selection and oversubscription are managed by LCC as they are our admissions authority.
It is parents’ responsibility to ensure their application is submitted to the authority before the deadline.
