Admissions

Parent Tours for September 2023 entry will take place between September and December 2022.  Please contact the school office in September 2022 for further information, and in the meantime please do take a look at our virtual tour under 'About Us' on our school website.

 

The Local Authority, Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead (RBWM) co-ordinates admissions. 

 

Starting School 

Children can start school the September following their 4th birthday (in Early Years) until transferring to the Junior stage in the September following their 7th birthday (at the end of Year 2).

All parents will need to apply separately for their children to transfer to a Junior school.

For further guidance on admissions and starting school please refer to the following information which can be found on the RBWM School Admissions homepage.

 

Designated appropriate area

Every address within the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead falls within the designated appropriate area for certain schools. You can find the designated appropriate area for a specific address by using The Royal Borough Neighbourhood View or Neighbourhood Map online facilities.

 

The Council strives to ensure fair allocations of school places according to criteria that have been set in advance. Where a school receives more applications than there are places, the following are the criteria that will be applied to determine which children should be offered places.

 

A child who is the subject of an Education, Health and Care Plan will be admitted to the school named in his or her plan. Remaining places will be allocated in line with the published oversubscription criteria. The criteria are listed below, in descending order:

1. Children in care. This category includes a ‘looked after child’ or a child who was previously looked after but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, child arrangements or special guardianship order, including children who appear (to the admission authority) to have been in state care outside of England and ceased to be in state care as a result of being adopted.

2. Children with exceptional medical or social reasons for requiring the school.

3. Junior schools only – children attending a linked infant school.

4. Children who live in the ‘designated appropriate area’ of the school and who have a sibling in attendance at the school at the time of the application and who is expected still to be attending the school at the time of entry.

5. Children who live in the ‘designated appropriate area’ of the school.

6. Children with a sibling in attendance at the school. The sibling would need to be attending the school at the time of admission of the child for whom a place is sought.

7. Children of a staff member.

8. Voluntary controlled schools only - Children whose parents choose the school on denominational grounds

9. Children whose parents have any other reason for their preference.

 

If a school does not have places for all the children in a particular category, the borough prioritises those applicants who live closest to the school. Proximity to the school will be measured in a straight line from the address point of the pupil’s house as determined by Ordnance Survey to the address point of the school using the local authority’s GIS system. In the event that two or more children live at the same distance from the school (for example families living in flats) and there are fewer places available then random allocation will be used to decide which child will be allocated the remaining place(s). The names will be drawn and the whole process scrutinised by persons independent of the authority.
