The LEA manages admission procedures at different stages: at 3+, 4+ and at 11+ and parents must complete forms to apply at each stage. Applications for secondary school places are completed in the Autumn term of Year 6.
Unfortunately, there is no automatic guarantee of a place.
Reading manages the different admission procedures centrally and the school has no influence in the application of the rules. The admission procedures are continually up-dated.
The Admission and Transfer systems are conducted by Reading Borough Council. Please contact the School Office for current information on admissions, or visit Reading Borough Council's Admissions webpage
An overview of the school curriculum and in-depth plans for each school year can be found on Our Curriculum pages.
Our approach to the curriculum includes compliance with the Equality Act and SEN/Disability regulations. These are detailed within our SEN policies which can be found on our website Inclusion page.

We are committed to providing a fully accessible environment which values and includes all pupils, staff, parents and visitors regardless of their age, education, physical, sensory, social, spiritual, emotional and cultural needs. We are committed to challenging negative attitudes about disability and accessibility and to developing a culture of awareness, tolerance and inclusion.
