Admissions

Children are admitted into the Reception Class in the Autumn Term of the school year in which they have their 5th birthday.  We operate a staggered intake system over a three week period, where all successful applicants will be given an admission date and time for starting school.  All pupils currently attend mornings only (8:55am – 12noon) for the first 3 weeks of the Autumn Term. After this initial period, the children will then attend school full-time.

All applicants for a Reception place must list the school on their Local Authority online or paper application form.  You must also complete a supplementary information sheet if you wish your child to be considered for a place in the Bilingual class.   All applicants not offered a place in the bilingual class will be considered for the Open (English only) class.  

The admission criteria and priority order for both the ‘Open’ and ‘Bilingual’ classes are

  1. Children looked after and those who cease to be children looked after because they were adopted, or because they became subject of a residence order or a special guardianship order.
  2. Children with a professionally supported exceptional medical need or exceptional social need for a place at Hotham as decided by the Director of Wandsworth Children Services.
  1. Siblings (children with a sister or brother attending school at their time of entry).
  2. Straight line distance from home to school.
