Admissions

Lynch Hill has 120 places in each year group, year R to year 6. Class sizes are limited to 30 pupils per class in Reception, year 1 and year 2. There is one intake each year into Reception, in September. An application for a Reception place is made using the common application form (CAF) which is available from Slough Borough Council. More information about Slough Borough's admissions process can be found here.

For Reception 2024 Admissions please read this letter from Slough Borough Council.

All other applications, including those for our Nursery, are made using an ‘in year’ admission form. These applications are processed by the school. The school maintains a waiting list.  Applications are ranked according to the published oversubscription criteria. The waiting list is held for one academic year. Length of time on the waiting list is not used for selection in the case of oversubscription.

Nursery

Children are admitted in September following their 3rd birthday.  Places are part time, either five mornings or five afternoons per week. There is one intake into Nursery in September each year. 

The school operates a waiting list for the Nursery.  Applications for a Nursery place are accepted at any time throughout the year and from any age.  Length of time on the waiting list is not used for selection in the case of oversubscription.
