 Admissions 2022-2023

Following consultation, our admissions arrangements for entry from September 2022 have changed.  We have added a priority for children of staff and changed the criterion 'nearest school' to 'distance from the child's home address'. 

All other criteria remain the same and we continue to welcome children from Woodmansterne and the surrounding areas of Banstead, Netherne, Hooley, Chipstead, Coulsdon, Sutton, Croydon, Carshalton, Purley & Epsom. A map of our defined catchment area can be found here.
