The school arranges visits in the Autumn Term and prospective applicants are invited to attend - bookings can be made through the school office on 01932 403116.

Before joining our Reception class pupils are invited in for an Induction programme in the summer term and parents/carers will meet the Reception Class teacher to discuss the organisation of the year, the curriculum and any relevant information the parents/carers would like to share which would support their child's induction to school.  The school accepts applications for pupils to join other year groups providing spaces are available.

At Byfleet the published admission number is 30 at age 4+. As an academy we continue to follow Surrey County Council's process as the admission authority for our school, including the admissions criteria which is:

  1. Looked after and previously looked after children
  2. Exceptional arrangements
  3. Children of staff at the school
  4. Siblings - children who have a sibling at the time of their admission
  5. Children for whom the school is the nearest to their home.
  6. Any other applicant.

Waiting Lists                                                                                       

Where there are more applicants than places available, waiting lists will operate for each year group according to the over subscription criteria shown for each school, and without regard to the date the application was received or when a child's name was added to the waiting list.
