The online application facility is the preferred method for most parents as it allows them to receive an email on allocation day, rather than a letter. However, should you be unable to use it, you can download a paper application form in the related documents column and return this to us.

It is extremely important that you submit your application by Midnight, 15 January 2024.

Important notes –

Before starting your application, we advise you read our Admission to Primary/ Infant School Information Booklet & Guidance Booklet in the related documents column for information on the Admissions process

If you live in Gloucestershire and are applying for an out of county school, you will still need to apply to Gloucestershire School Admissions.

If you live in another county you will need to apply to your own authority requesting a Gloucestershire school.  Please note that we will not consider your request or offer a school place unless we receive an application from your own authority.

For Information and guidance regarding Lower to Middle School transfer please visit the relevant authority’s website.
