September 2021 admissions information for prospective parents

The application process for September 2021 can be found in the Surrey County Council Surrey School Admissions 2021 Leaflet (PDF, 929.4 kB). Online applications can be started from 2nd November 2020 and must be completed by 15th January 2021.

Usually between September and January each year we run school tours for small groups of parents with our Headteacher, Lindsey Chivers.  Unfortunately, due to the current unprecedented circumstances relating to Covid-19, we will not be able to run tours or hold an open morning during the autumn term 2020.  However, our prospectus can be found here (PDF, 934.62 kB) and we have filmed a virtual tour of the school which we hope will provide you with an insight into Prior Heath:

Waiting List

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.
