Admissions


For Reception: Parents need to complete an application form to be sent directly to the admissions team at County Hall or you can apply online. Application forms are distributed by most pre-schools and nurseries or can be collected from the school of choice. Download our prospectus here.

Admissions for other school years: Before a child is admitted to the school in any other year apart from Reception, a Primary School Admission Application Form for Transfers must be completed by the child’s parent or guardian. These can be obtained from the school or from County Hall and should be returned to the school when completed.

Transfer to secondary school: At the end of year 6, children transfer to secondary school with the majority of our children going to Avon Valley College or Stonehenge Secondary. Applications for a place at secondary school must be made through Wiltshire Council in the Autumn term of year 6. The deadline for secondary school admissions for September 2015 is by 12pm on 31 October 2014. Your child will bring home a form or you can apply online.

Transfer arrangements for our Year 6 pupils are sent to parents during the Spring Term prior to their children starting in September. These arrangements include visits to Bulford St Leonard's by Avon Valley or Stonehenge staff, visits made to Avon Valley or Stonehenge by our Year 6 pupils and Parents Evenings when you can visit the schools and meet the teachers who will be directly involved with your child/children.
