Consider at least three schools in your local area
Look at the schools’ websites and social media platforms to inform your decision.
Attend the open evenings with your child- this is really important for getting a feel for the school and whether their ethos and culture is right for your child.
Even if you are certain that you have a number one choice, it is vital that you put a second AND third choice on your application. Putting only one choice could result in your child being allocated a school a considerable distance from where you live.
If you need any help with your application please contact the school office for help and support.
