Admissions

We will continue to use the services of Leicestershire County Council to administer our admissions and appeals. Parents must apply to Leicestershire County Council by 15 January (of the year in which your child is due to start in the Autumn).  Parents will hear whether or not they have a place for the Autumn intake in April.  Click this link to take you to the Leicestershire County Council website to  apply online.
