Admissions.

Stowting Church of England Primary School offers a high quality education to children aged between 4 and 11 years old. We are committed to offering Personal and Academic excellence, every day to every child. We work together to prepare children for a successful future in the real world. Our children are offered a stimulating and engaging curriculum that is underpinned by our Christian Values of Peace, Friendship, Trust, Forgiveness and Thankfulness.

 

If you are considering choosing Stowting Church of England Primary School for your child, we would love  you to visit our wonderful school in order to see who we are and what we do, to meet our staff and children and ask us any questions you may have. Whilst we do hold Open Mornings, you do not need to wait for these as you are most welcome to visit at a time that is convenient to you. To request a visit, please contact the School Office. 

 

Each year we have 15 places per year for new entrants into our Reception Class. Admissions to the school are dealt with by the Local Authority. Whenever the school is oversubscribed then the following Admissions Criteria will be employed.
