Admissions arrangements For Year 7 September 2018 Intake

If your child is due to join us in September 2018 or 2019, we realise that you may have questions and need information to help you and your child prepare for the big day. That’s why we’ve created this page which provides quick links to essential documents as well as some key dates. Take a look at the information provided here and browse our website but if you do have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact our School Manager, Mrs Jo Braithwaite on 01636 957690.

Our first event for new starters will be our Spring Welcome Event on Saturday 19 May 2018. At this event, you’ll have a chance to meet some of our staff, speak to students and hear from the Headteacher. You’ll also receive your Welcome Pack which includes the Parent Handbook, information about uniform and the Essential Information Forms that we’ll need you to complete before term starts.

The Spring Welcome Event will be followed up with an induction evening on Thursday 5 July where students will have a chance to experience lessons, find out which House they are in and get to know some of their peers. There will also be a final chance to get your child measured up for their uniform – and don’t forget, all new students for 2018-19 will receive a free uniform pack which includes our blazer, tie and PE Kit. For further information, click the link below.

Term starts on Monday 3 September 2018 for Year 7 students. Year 8 will start on Wednesday 5 September. This means that all new Year 7s will have two orientation days in school led by their Form Tutors and our Senior Students.


Choosing the right school for your child’s secondary education is a very important decision.

Our Suthers School day time tours will also be supported by our Year 4 and 5 Summer Welcome Event on Thursday 12 July 2018. At this event, you’ll have a chance to meet some of our staff, speak to students and hear from the Headteacher. This event will help you to understand the process for applying for your child s secondary school place and hopefully help you to make the right decision.
