Admissions

Most pupils enter at Nursery, and then progress through to Reception or as the children call it 'Big School'. Some pupils also join us at Reception and pupils are welcome at any age dependent on a place being available, although places in other years are limited and in years where there is no place available we operate waiting groups.

We encourage prospective parents and pupils to visit us both formally and informally to get a true flavour of the school. We hold various Open Events throughout the year, including a specific Nursery and Reception Open Evening, which prospective parents and pupils are most welcome to attend. A meeting with Mr Robert Duigan, the Headmaster, is also a key part of the admissions process.

"I would like to say a big thank you to you and all the staff there. Having moved schools my son started at Crackley unsure of himself and his abilities. In a year he has made tremendous improvement, both academically and personally and his confidence has gone through the roof. Most importantly he is happy and wants to come to school everyday and try his best. I couldn't ask for anything more. This is down to all of you and his classmates."

current reception to junior 6

Applications for places in the current Reception to Junior 6 will be treated on an individual basis as places are limited. In years where there is no place available we operate waiting groups. Please contact Jenny Vaughan, our
Admissions and Marketing Secretary to discuss these on an individual basis. Should the possibility of a potential place be available you will be invited in to meet with Mr Duigan, the Headmaster, then if appropriate you should complete a Registration Form and return it with the accompanying fee of £50 (non-returnable), after which time your child will be invited in for a taster day.

During the taster day children in Reception and Junior 1 will be assessed informally. Children in Junior 2 to 6 will be given assessments in Mathematics and English. Once a taster day is arranged, we will contact you to advise that we
plan to seek a reference from your child’s current school. Following the taster day, confirmation of a place being offered would be made in writing subject to a satisfactory reference being received.
 
To secure your place return your completed Confirmation of Acceptance Form with a deposit of £300 within 14 days of the date of the offer being made.
