Admissions for September 2023
We know it can be a helpful part of the decision process to know where our pupils joined our school from in Reception and also where they go on to after year 6.
The table below shows that our children in EYFS this year come from a broad range of settings. We recognise this and we’re quick to support children to settle in. We help them to both maintain previous friendships from nursery whilst also supporting children to form new ones too! If you are viewing this page on a mobile phone, please scroll on the image to access the numerical information.
