For Reception

Parents need to complete an application form to be sent directly to the admissions team at County Hall or you can apply online. Application forms are distributed by most pre-schools and nurseries or can be collected from the school of choice.

Admissions for Other School Years

Before a child is admitted to the school in any other year apart from Reception, a Primary School Admission Application Form for Transfers must be completed by the child’s parent or guardian. These can be obtained from the school or from County Hall and should be returned to the school when completed.

Transfer to Secondary School

At the end of year 6, children transfer to secondary school and unless parents make alternative arrangements for secondary education, children living in Calne and the surrounding villages usually transfer to The John Bentley School in Calne. Applications for a place at secondary school must be made through Wiltshire Council in the Autumn term of year 6. The deadline for secondary school admissions for September 2017 is by 12pm on 31 October 2015. Your child will bring home a form or you can apply online.

Transfer arrangements for our Year 6 pupils going to The John Bentley School are sent to parents during the Spring Term prior to their children starting in September. These arrangements include visits to Cherhill by The John Bentley School staff, visits made to The John Bentley School by our Year 6 pupils and Parents Evenings when you can visit the school and meet the teachers who will be directly involved with your child/children.
