Applying for a place in our Reception class for the school year September 2023 to July 2024.


Parents and carers who live in Reading (ie. pay council tax to Reading Borough Council) and have a child born between 1 September 2018 and 31 August 2019, who want a place for their child in our reception class in the school year 2023 - 2024 must apply to Reading Borough Council. 


Reading Borough Council have dispatched application packs to parents/carers living in Reading and having children attending schools or other early years settings in Reading . The pack includes a guide for parents and carers 'Starting School in 2023 - 2024'  which will provide you with all the information you need about how to apply for a school place.
