Reception Admissions 2023-2024

Surrey County Council is the admissions authority for this school, but as we are so close to the borders with Sutton and Croydon, we have many families from these boroughs attending our school.

All London boroughs and Surrey use eadmissions online application method, but you could complete a paper application form if you prefer. Each local authority has its own application form. You must complete the form for the local authority where you live by the closing date, regardless of which schools you are applying for.
