Admissions to Reception (Infant School)

There is no automatic transfer from Nursery to Reception. The process is coordinated by the Local Authority to a national timetable.

The West Berkshire Admissions Team can be contacted on 01635 519771 or by email at admissions@westberks.gov.uk.

Information about the process and a link to apply online can be found here.

Admissions to Year 3 (Junior School)

Whilst there is no automatic transfer from the Infant School to the Junior School (Year 2 to Year 3), the probability of a year 3 place for your child moving from the infant school, is very high. The process is coordinated by the Local Authority to a national timetable.

The West Berkshire Admissions Team can be contacted on 01635 519771 or by email at admissions@westberks.gov.uk.
