**We currently have a few spaces available in some of our classes.  Please contact the school office if you would like to come and see why we have been declared the 'Number One School in West Berkshire'**  


If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below.  We welcome visits from prospective parents at anytime throughout the year. 


Applications for entry into our Reception class begins in October (for entry in the following academic year). Prospective parents should apply for a school place by the closing date in the academic year of their child's 4th Birthday.


Our Pupil Admission Number (P.A.N) is 15 i.e we can offer up to a maximum of 15 pupils a place in our reception class (in very exceptional circumstances we may exceed our P.A.N). Over 60% of our current pupil cohort comes from out of catchment. The headteacher would be delighted to show prospective parents around the school - please ring or e-mail the office to make an appointment.
