Admissions arrangements 2023/24

Somerset Local Authority (LA) have now determined their admission arrangements for the 2023/24 academic year and can be viewed on their website


For in-year transfers, please contact us directly to see if there is a space and we will help you through the procedure.

We love to show parents around our wonderful schools - Please contact the school to book a tour, however virtual tours of our schools are viewable below 


Our open days for September 2023 admissions will be held in the Autumn term. Please check back in the summer for dates. 




For children starting school in September, Somerset County Council deal with all reception places and you will need to submit an application form to Somerset County Council by January of that year. Please see the Somerset website for all information.


Where an application has been refused in any year group, the child will be placed on a waiting list. This will be kept strictly in order of the oversubscription criteria set by the Local Authority, as the Admission Authority and the child will remain on the waiting list until the end of the academic year in which the application was refused. Parents are responsible for informing the Admission Authority of any changes in their circumstances, which could affect their place on the waiting list.
