Reception Admissions

Parents of pre-schoolers might find it hard to believe that their little ones will be starting school next year.

If your child was born between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018 they will be due to start reception year next September.


There are many factors to take into consideration when choosing the right school and our schools are more than happy to help you make the right choice.


It’s really important to apply by the relevant closing date or you may not be considered in the first round of applications. You’ll be able to apply from Sunday 12 September. 


We can’t reserve a place for those who apply late, so you’ll be less likely to get your preferred school.

You can name up to three preferences and they can be schools both within and outside North Somerset.
