Admission Arrangements

Open days: September Reception intakes

Our Open days run in the Autumn term and include opportunities to visit at a weekend, in the evening and during the school day to fit in with busy family lives. We begin with a short introduction by our Headteacher, followed by a tour of the school and its wonderful grounds, with plenty of opportunity to ask any questions.

We are also be delighted to show you round individually if you prefer so you can take your time, get a proper feel for our wonderful school and ask us anything you like! Please contact the school office to arrange your visit.

Please follow the link to Kent County Council's Primary School Admissions Website.
