Application Date and Age Guidelines for the Academic Year 2023-24

We aim to place pupils in the correct year group according to their age. However, for some children this may differ from the expected year group, especially if they come to us from a different school system. In such circumstances, we will place children into the year group that is the best fit for them academically, physically, emotionally, and socially.
