We invite prospective parents to come and visit us on Thursday mornings between September and January once their child reaches three years of age. To make an appointment please call the school office on telephone number 0208 894 1447.

The school is heavily oversubscribed and the thirty places for Reception are allocated in strict accordance with our Admissions Policy (link below.)  Please note that if you wish your child to be considered for a Foundation place (church supported) you should contact the school to obtain a Supplementary Information Form.  This form will need to be completed by the Minister at your regular place of worship and returned to the school.

For in-year admissions and waiting lists, parents should contact the school office to see if the school has a vacancy.
