Admissions guidance clearly recommends that you apply for more than one school as a place at any school, including your catchment area, cannot be guaranteed.
Do take the time to see what other schools have to offer in the event that your first choice school cannot be allocated.
Whilst this information is directed currently to our year 6 families, it is quite important information for all parents to note, particularly those of children in year 5.
Individual school websites always advertise their open days/evenings and are always open to separate visits if you cannot make any of their published dates.
I hope you find this information helpful.
