St John and St Nicolas Schools Federation

For the good of all - through curiosity, creativity and love.

Admissions

Both of our schools are voluntary aided, meaning that they are their own admissions authorities. However, admissions are co-ordinated by the local authority. Parents should apply for admission through the local authority (https://info.westberks.gov.uk/primaryadmissions). 

 

Our main admissions points are Nursery and Reception (St John's) and Year 3 (St Nicolas). All St John's Year 2 parents must apply for a Year 3 place, even if they want their child to go to St Nic's.
