Admission Arrangements


We would like to invite you to come and have a look at the school to see if this the right environment for you and your family.  Being part of this school means being part of the Springwood Family and we are proud to be part of this family.


Why not take a look at our 'Good' Ofsted reports, our results and the class pages to get a feel for us.


Admissions for children starting school for the first time in September 2024 opens on lst November 2023 and the deadline for applications  is 15th January 2024.  Places will be notified by Hampshire County Council.  If you miss the deadline for making an application for your child, you will need to make a late application through Hampshire Admissions or alternatively the office can provide you with a paper copy.


We believe that every child is unique.  So if you do decide to start with us, please make an appointment to meet with a senior leader and tour the schools and we will agree a starting date and induction plan with you.  We have tours available on Tuesdays 9.30 - 10.30am and Thursdays 3.30 - 4.30pm.


Please refer to the Admission policies by following the links below.
