Admissions

Applying for a place for your child at Henleaze Junior School

Places available for September 2021

We are currently accepting applications for the year 2021-22. We have places available in all year groups. Contact us to arrange a visit or to find out more about how to apply.

Children who attend Henleaze Infant School automatically qualify for a place in Year 3. Children from other schools and children transferring during the year, or in older year groups, need to apply, using our online application form.

If you are unable to use the online form, you can download an application form and send it in by email, or hand it in at the office. Alternatively, phone or email the office if you need us to send you a form by post, or pop in and pick one up.

As an Academy, Henleaze Junior School is its own admissions authority. Any applications made to the local education authority will be forwarded to us. We will then contact you and ask you to complete our application form.

Will I get in?

The Henleaze schools are very popular. However, if you are moving to the area, there is a good chance that we will be able to offer places to your children.

Most of the children from Year 2 at Henleaze Infant School transfer to Henleaze Junior School in Year 3, but not necessarily all 90, so we usually have spaces to offer to children wishing to transfer from other local schools or from other areas.

Inevitably over the course of four years, some of our children move on, so there is always the possibility of a space in Years 4, 5 or 6. Contact the office if you would like to know more about the current availability of places in each year group, and we will do our best to help.


Visiting the school

We recommend parents visit the school before applying for a place: we think you'll like it, but every school has its own distinct character, and it is important that you feel confident in what we will offer your children.

If you arrange to visit, you will usually be offered a tour of the school, led either by a member of the senior leadership team or by some of the pupils. In either case, you will have the opportunity to ask all those burning questions that cannot be satisfied by trawling the website or prospectus.
