New Admissions

From 1st April 2022, parents can apply directly to a school for a place in year 1 – 6. This does not apply when parents are applying for their child’s first school place.  For Reception children and Year 7 children starting in September, parents still need to apply to Essex County Council for a place. They can be contacted on 0845 602 2200. Applications in this instance can be completed online at

Please contact the school office and speak to the Admissions Officer if you would like to register your child for a nursery place.  If you wish to apply for a place in year 1 – 6, please complete the form below:
