Admissions Information

All admissions are completed in accordance with the school and LA's admissions policies. Children living in the school's catchment area are normally offered a place at school. Applications from parents living out of the catchment area should be made to the Harrogate Education Office. The current planned admission number is 15 children per year group. Prospective parents are welcome to look around the school and should contact the school office to make an appointment. Parents wishing to enrol their children should complete an admission form and parental preference form. To apply for a place and for further information on the admissions process, please click here.

Reception Induction

We know that starting school is a huge change for parents and children. This is why we treat the induction of our new reception class with great importance. We offer a number of opportunities for our new reception children to get to know us and our school.  Parents also have the chance to meet with the Oak Class team prior to their child starting school.  Our induction process is tailored to meet the needs of individual children to ensure smooth transition.


Below are some quotes from the previous year.

I feel the children have been made to feel very welcome and the transition to ‘big school’ is made a lot easier by the afternoon visits prior to the summer holidays. Mrs Fillingham.




Emily enjoyed her induction visits, including the lunches, and we think it was good preparation for her. She was very excited to be starting and her reaction was ‘I loved it!’. She enjoyed painting, reading stories and using the interactive whiteboard.


"All the communications from school have been excellent." Mrs King
