Admission to Reception

Children are admitted at the beginning of the school year in which they become five, and are offered a full-time place in September.

As a Foundation school, Claygate Primary School is its own admissions authority, but in common with most Foundation schools, has delegated the operation of admissions to the Local Authority, Surrey County Council.  To find up to date admissions arrangements and details about how to apply, either as part of the normal admissions intake or during the school year, click here to follow the link to the admissions pages of Surrey's website.

For children joining the school in Reception in September, we arrange an induction programme during the preceding summer term which is designed to make the transition to ‘big school' as smooth as possible.

We are always pleased to show prospective parents around the school. Please contact the school office and a member of the admin team will be happy to make an appointment for you.

Admission to other year groups:

Prospective parents with children in other year groups are very welcome to visit the school, and we will be pleased to offer your child a place if we have one in the relevant year group.

As for entry in Reception, Surrey is the Admissions Authority, and the offer of a place will therefore come from the Local Authority rather than the school.  Information about in-year admissions is available from Surrey's website by following the link above.
