Waiting Lists

A waiting list for those still seeking a place in Reception will be held until 31st December 2017.  If places become available before the end of December 2017, offers will be made in accordance with oversubscription criteria. Parents/Carers will be asked to confirm whether or not they wish their child’s name to remain on the admissions waiting list.  Each child added to the list will be ranked in accordance with our oversubscription criteria.


In-year waiting lists will be held for children whose parent/carer is seeking a place until 31st August 2018.  Swindon Borough Council will write to parents/carers to confirm whether or not they wish their child’s name to remain on the waiting list for the next academic year.  Each child added to the list will require the waiting list to be ranked in accordance with the oversubscription criteria and so a child’s position on the list may change.  Please advise the school's where your child is on the waiting list whether you wish to remain or be removed from the list.

Appeals will be arranged by the Local Authority (Swindon Borough Council).
