Priority is normally given to children living within the School's designated area and then to siblings and others living outside this area.


Throughout the Summer term we hold transition events for pre-school children. These sessions aim to introduce children to Ashurst Wood Primary so that they can begin to feel comfortable and confident in the school environment and get to know key members of staff.  During the term prior to admission, children are invited to spend some time in school with their teacher.


Parents seeking admission for a child to the school aged between four and eleven should contact the local authority 'admissions team' at County Hall North (contact details above as per admission to Reception class) to discuss the availability of space and arrangements for joining the school.
