Return to Reception

Applying for a reception place for September 2024

Apply for primary, infant and junior school places

If your child was born between 1 September 2019 and 31 August 2020 they will be eligible to start school in September 2024. You should apply for their infant or primary school place by 15 January 2024. You will be able to make your application from 9am on 6 November 2023.

The application process is quick and easy and you can also find information about how to choose a school and apply for a place in our parents’ guide to primary admissions.

You’ll get your offer on 16 April 2024 and if you’re unhappy with the decision you can make a school admission appeal.

If you would like to look around our school, please call the school office to book an appointment or attend one of our open day/evenings!

We look forward to welcoming you to our Whitfield St James’ family.
