Cheriton Primary School

Admissions

Do you have a child starting school in September, or are you new to the Cheriton area?

 

We welcome families to visit the school for a personal tour during the school day, so that you can see the school in action and meet our friendly children and staff. 

Pupils usually start primary school in the September following their fourth birthday. If your child was born between 1 September 2019 and 31 August 2020 this will be from September 2024. You must make an online application for a Reception place.   

Closing date for making applications is 15 January 2024.           

This year we are pleased that we are again able to host  tours of the school for prospective parents. We also welcome families to visit the school for a personal tour during the school day.
