We follow the Lincolnshire admissions code and have a Pupil Admission Number of 10 pupils into Reception each year. Our admissions policy details the criteria we apply when applications are received to the school. It also includes our over subscription and appeal criteria.
Every year, we welcome a brand new cohort of Reception children to our Marston Thorold's family.
If your child was born between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018, they can start Reception from September 2022.
If your child does fit within that category, you will need to apply for a school place, which you can do from November 2021 until the deadline of 15th January 2022.
There are two ways of applying. You can do it online on the Lincolnshire County Council - Schools Admission Website or you can call 01522 782030.
