September 2022 Admissions
During the Autumn Term 2021 we will be running “talk and tour” events for parents who have children who will be starting school in September 2022. These sessions will be led by our Headteacher, Mrs Lindsey Chivers, who will give a talk about Prior Heath and this will be followed by a tour of the school and grounds with either Mrs Chivers or a member of our senior leadership team. Each session will last for approximately 1 hour and needs to be booked in advance. As these are quite formal sessions, we do request that children are not brought along if possible please. If you would like further information about these sessions, including dates and times, please email: [email protected] and a member of the office staff will get back to you.

As a community school, Surrey County Council manage our waiting list. Your child’s name will be placed on the waiting list(s) of any Surrey community or voluntary controlled school which you listed as a higher preference on your application form. Due to increased call volumes following the Covid-19 outbreak, Surrey’s Admissions Team urge you not to call about your waiting list position. They will make primary offers as places become available and if your child is eligible for an offer they will contact you. Your child’s name will remain on the waiting list(s) until the end of the 2020/21 academic year.
