The Governors of Almond Hill Junior School have adopted the Criteria of Primary Admissions: County and Voluntary Controlled Schools as advised by the L.E.A.

As a general rule, admission is considered to be at the start of the autumn term following the end of compulsory Key Stage 1 education. Pupils who attend the Letchmore Infants and Nursery School will have an overriding priority for admission into Almond Hill Junior School.

Request for admissions during a school year will be considered at the time and will be subject to the same criteria as children transferring from Key Stage 1 schooling.

Almond Hill Junior School will admit children up to its standard number.  Once this number has been reached places will be allocated by reference to the following criteria:

A child will be admitted if:

  • the age group into which the child lawfully enters has an average class size of less than 30
  • the class size is more than 30, but the Head Teacher and the Governors agree that the class can be enlarged without adverse effect on the children already in that class.
