Reception (EYFS) Admissions for September 2019

When will my child start school?

Children born between 1st September 2014 and 31st August 2015 start school in September 2019. 

How can I find out more about Highlees before I apply?

Towards the end of 2018, we will hold open sessions where prospective parents/carers are welcomed to Highlees. We present information about Highlees, give tours of the school showing our children at work, and offer the opportunity for parents to ask questions about the school. The sessions will  be advertised in the Autumn term of 2018. If your child's name is on our waiting list, you will automatically receive an invitation. We also welcome visits throughout the year. If you are interested in visiting our school, or have any questions, please contact our school office who will be happy to help. Please see our “Contact Us” section for our contact details.
