Enrolling for school

Pupils are admitted to schools’ reception classes at the beginning of the academic year in which they reach their 5th birthday.

In order to assist schools in the allocation of staff and the planning of resources, parents are required to register their child with a school.

Parents of children who are aged 5 on or after 1 September 2019, should contact the relevant school as soon as possible to register their child for the start of the academic year 2019/20, which begins on Wednesday 4 September 2019.

Catchment areas exist for each school. Any parent unsure which catchment area they reside in should contact the Department of Education and Children on +44 1624 685820.
