We are often asked about our catchment area.There is no set catchment area; it varies each year. From initial offers for September 2018 admissions it was a 1.055km radius from the school. There were 38 children who were siblings of children at the school or at Banstead Junior School for September 2018. This left 51 places for children without siblings.

We would love to welcome you to our school. Surrey County Council deal with our new reception admissions and any in-year admissions. To apply for a place for the September 2019 reception intake please click on the link below:

Appeals timetable

Surrey have recently provided further guidance on admitting children out of their chronological year group. In general, it is the view of the local authority that children should be educated in their chronological year group, with the curriculum differentiated as appropriate, and that they should only be educated out of their chronological year group in very limited circumstances. Each request will be considered according to the circumstances of the case and what is in the child’s best interests.  This will not normally be for more than a single National Curriculum year. Please click on the link below to read the full document or contact the school for further information.

Guidance on the education of children out of their chronological year group

A new code of practice for children with special educational needs was introduced in September 2014. As part of the new Code of Practice schools are required to publish an SEN Information Report. This details the provision for children with special educational needs. It explains how we help children who need support when they are learning. If you have any questions regarding the document please contact Mr Burbidge.
