Admission To Crackley Hall - Reception To Junior 6
Most of our pupils enter at Nursery and progress through to Reception. Some pupils also join us at Reception and pupils are welcome at any age dependent on a place being available. Places in other years may be limited and, in years where there is no place available, we operate waiting groups.
We encourage prospective parents and pupils to visit us both formally and informally to get a true flavour of the school. We hold various Open Events throughout the year, including a specific Nursery and Reception Open Evening in November, which prospective parents and pupils are most welcome to attend. A meeting with Mr Robert Duigan, the Headmaster, is also a key part of the admissions process.
Our Admissions Secretary, Mrs Jenny Vaughan will be pleased to talk you through the admissions process and current availability, please contact her on 01926 514410/514444 or email her on email@example.com. To request a prospectus pack please click here.

External applicants interested in a place in Reception need to register as soon as possible. Once we have received your completed Registration Form and accompanying fee of £50 (non-returnable), you will be invited to bring your child in for a taster session in pre-school. Subject to availability and a satisfactory taster session, offer letters to external candidates will be sent out first class on Friday 5 March 2021 with a Confirmation of Acceptance Form, which we ask you to complete and return to us together with a deposit of £300 by the acceptance deadline of Monday 26 April 2021.
Current Reception to Junior 6
Applications for places in the current Reception to Junior 6 will be treated on an individual basis. In years where there is no place available we operate waiting groups. Please contact Jenny Vaughan, our Admissions Secretary, to discuss.
Should a potential place be available you will be invited in to meet with Mr Duigan, the Headmaster, then if appropriate you should complete a Registration Form and return it with the accompanying fee of £50 (non-returnable), after which time your child would normally be invited for a Taster Day. Unfortunately we are unable to host Taster Days at the moment due to the current government restrictions. Instead, your child will be invited to an informal chat with Mr Duigan at a mutually convenient day and time.
We will also ask for your child’s most recent school report to support your application and will seek a reference from your child’s current school. Following receipt of this information, confirmation of a place being offered would be made in writing. To secure your place return your completed Confirmation of Acceptance Form with a deposit of £300 within 14 days of the date of the offer being made.
The final deadline for applications and completed registration forms for entry in September 2021 is Friday 21 May 2021. All incoming pupils need to have completed the admissions process by Friday 11 June 2021 to enable the applicant to attend our planned Induction Morning at the end of that month. (Although a place at Crackley Hall may become available after this date, and applications will be processed, we cannot guarantee availability of places.)
New pupils are given the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the school, staff and fellow pupils when they are invited to our Induction Morning in the Trinity Term, normally at the end of June.
Bursaries are available for pupils wishing to join Crackley Hall although these are normally awarded to children from Junior 3 and above. Application forms are available from the Foundation Bursar’s office and from our website. Completed applications should be forwarded to the Foundation Bursar with supporting documentary evidence.
Note: Deposits are refunded after the end of the final term which the pupil spends at the school.
