Admissions

We warmly encourage parents to visit our school in order to find out more about us.  Parents are welcome to visit on one of our Open Mornings (held in the Autumn term each year), or by appointment with the school office.  Such visits are not obligatory and do not form part of the process of deciding which children are to be offered a place at the school.

Our pupils primarily live in the parish of St Hugh of Lincoln, Knaphill, but we welcome applications from beyond these boundaries too. The parish boundaries are shown on the parish map.

St Hugh of Lincoln has a Published Admissions Number (PAN) of 30, with the expectation that there will be 30 pupils per class. Very occasionally, in Key Stage 2, governors may exercise their discretion to admit additional pupils above the limit of 30 in a class.

Admissions to Reception Year

We operate under the local authority’s coordinated admissions scheme. It is the responsibility of the school’s governors to determine the school’s admission policy, in conjunction with the Diocese.

When applying for a place at St Hugh’s it is essential that the local authority part of the applications process is completed, and that a supplementary information form is provided to the school in the case of baptised Catholic children or practising members of other churches.

Admissions other than at the start of Reception Year

Occasionally, vacancies arise mid-year and in all year groups. We keep a waiting list.  Please address all enquiries to Mrs Copeman, our Admissions Officer, in our school office.  In the event of there being more applications than available spaces then the school’s oversubscription criteria (within the admissions policy in force for the current academic year at the time of admission) is applied.
