The school operates a planned admissions limit of 30 per class. It is Local Authority policy to admit all children who reach the age of 5 in the appropriate academic year at the beginning of the Autumn Term. However, the intake will be staggered over a two week period.
All parents, whether in-zone or out-of-zone, wishing to register their child for consideration for a place in the Reception Class, must have registered their child the year before the September start date of the appropriate year. Forms are available on line www.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk/residents/ or from the Local Authority and must be returned to them by the stated date: failure to do so will mean that your child will not be considered for a place if the numbers exceed the planned admission limit of 30 per class. Parents must understand that there is no longer an automatic right for in-zone parents to secure a place for their child at the school.
It is important to point out that any children moving into the catchment area can only be admitted if there are places available.

The catchment area consists of Guilden Sutton village and the houses along Wicker Lane as far as the A51, Piper's Ash on the eastern side of the A41 and the houses on Littleton Lane as far as the A51. At the present time, approximately 50 percent of our children live outside the official catchment area.
