We are now a one-form entry school, like a big family. There are 30 places each year from reception to year 4, and 45 places in years 5 and 6. Get in touch if you are looking for a school place – we would love to welcome your family to our school community.

All Admissions are made in accordance with the Schools Admissions Code, which ensures that school places are allocated in an open and fair way. You can read the guidance here. Primary School Admissions are administered by our Local Authority, Southwark and we adhere to their processes and policies for administering places fairly. In the event of there being more applications than places available, then Southwark apply our oversubscription criteria (outlined in our admissions policy).

For more information of primary admissions look at the primary admissions section of the Southwark Website. Instructions showing you how to apply online can be seen here.

Places are allocated by taking into account:

  •  Looked after children and all previously looked after children
  •  Children who have siblings attending the school at the time of entry
  •  Children who have a specific social/ medical or psychological need which the school can meet ( supported by the professional advice of  the relevant professional as to why the school is necessary and agreed by the Headteacher)
  •  The child living nearest to the school, measured from the front door of the home along the shortest and safest walking route to the school’s main gate.
