In Milton Keynes and Northamptonshire, parents can apply for reception places in primary from the September before their child’s fourth birthday, with the deadline typically being in the following January, and places offered in April using a fair system based on school admissions criteria.

Further information, exact deadlines and useful links are provided by our local authority partners on their web pages here:

When you apply, you are expected to list three schools in order of priority. To make these choices you will naturally be keen to consider school learning environments, curriculum, staffing, performance in the context of others in the community, and so on.

School visits and tours – usually held in October and November – are organised by all of our leadership teams and can be booked by calling school offices.

We have a proven track record of delivering excellent education at all of our schools regardless of where they are on their improvement journey.
