Welcome to Chevening St. Botolph's. We warmly invite you to visit our school if you are interested in a place for your child. Between September and January we run a range of Open Mornings where you can see the school in action and meet some of our pupils. At other times of the year, we are delighted to show you around individually and talk with you about whether this is the right school for your child.
Entry at Reception
Chevening (St Botolph's) is a high performing and popular school and as such is sometimes over-subscribed at for Reception Class entry. However, for most years the intake stretches beyond the church elements of our over-subscription criteria, to children who are admitted on the basis of the distance from their home address to the school. Indeed, in some years due to lower birth rates or lower sibling numbers, we have even had spaces in our reception class. The myth that you are not able to get a space unless you attend the local church simply isn't true for most years, so we would encourage all prospective parents to come and visit us.
Entry at Other Points
We welcome admissions enquiries for all year groups. Please contact the school office if you would like to visit the child with a view to applying for a place for your child. Where year groups are already full, we operate a waiting list, and allocate places as they become available in accordance with our oversubscription criteria(please see Admissions Policy). If applying for a place at Chevening, outside of the normal admissions point, you will need to complete an In-Year Admissions Form and a Supplementary Information Form.
