The catchment/designated area for the school is the Twyford and Ruscombe, plus Charvil - see map below.
The vast majority of pupils move from our Infant to our Junior School, although attendance at the Infants does not guarantee a place at the Juniors. A separate application will need to be made.
Whilst we take children from different faith backgrounds and families who have no faith, as a Church of England school we consider that parents should be in sympathy with the Christian ethos in which their child's education will take place. Being a member of a local church is not part of our admissions criteria.
All children entering school will be offered an introductory session in the term before entry to enable them to meet their teacher and familiarise themselves with the school. On this visit, parents will meet the class and Headteacher, receive information regarding the school routines, etc., and have the opportunity to purchase items of school uniform.
Similarly, when children leave our school, we support them with visits to our local junior school, so they can become familiar with the working of a school for older pupils.
