School Admissions

Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision as a parent to make and we want to be able to help make this a straightforward process for you. We recommend that you visit the schools in your locality to ask the questions important for you and of course see the school at work.
If you would like your child to attend our school, please contact the school office in the first instance so that we can make an appointment for you to visit. Telephone 01983 882505

Please note we cannot currently do school tours during school time, please see our virtual ones. 

If your child is due to start school in September, you will probably see notices in the County Press Education supplement regarding open days, as well as information supplied to local Pre-Schools. By law children must start school at the start of the term following their fifth birthday. Most children will start school when they are four years old.

Applications can be made on-line in the Autumn term at www.iwight.com with a closing date early in the following January. If you are unable to apply online you can request an application form from School Admissions and Transport by telephoning 823455. If you are moving into our area, please contact the county admissions team. They will then let you know whether places are available or whether you need to join our waiting list.
