Admissions

Our official catchment area is the Parish of Whittlesford. However, we also have a significant number of pupils from adjoining parishes.

The Local Authority (LA) sets an admissions limit of 30 children each year. In the event of oversubscription, the LA policy sets out the following order of priority*:

  1. Children who are looked after, with a statement of special educational needs which names the school or for whom this is the only school that can meet their long term needs
  2. Children living in the catchment area, with a sibling at the school at the time of admission
  3. Children living in the catchment area
  4. Children living outside the catchment area, who have a sibling at the school at the time of admission
  5. Children living outside the catchment area, who have not been able to gain a place at their catchment area school because of oversubscription
  6. Children living outside the catchment area but nearest to this school, according to the shortest available travel route as measured by a straight line
For admissions to year groups other than Reception, parents should apply to the Cambridgeshire Admissions Team. If the number of children in that year group does not exceed the published admission number and there is no reserve list, a place should be offered.
 
Further information is available from the Admission Team at Castle Hill, on 0345 045 1370.
 
*Parents may appeal against any decision taken regarding the admission of their child to the school.
