  • Pupils must have reached the age of four years by 1st September of their proposed year of entry. This date may be subject to change by the BOM from time to time. Pupils should not be sent to school if they are not ‘ready’.
  • Forms must be fully completed, signed and dated.

The closing date is usually between 10 and 14 days after the application forms are sent out. A copy of the child’s birth certificate and baptismal certificate (if applicable) and any relevant reports must also be included with the Application Form.
