Children are admitted to Reception in the September following their fourth birthday. Applications may be made online via the Merton website (see link below). Offers are sent out to parents in the April prior to entry. Once parents/carers have confirmed to the London Borough of Merton that they are accepting a place, contact details are forwarded to the school.
