September Intake at 4+ Children entering Sherborne Abbey CE VC Primary School at 4+ are admitted as a single entry group. We run two Reception Classes. All children are admitted on a full-time basis unless parents, in discussion with the headteacher, ask for a staggered intake. The Admission Number for September 2017 is 60. The school will follow the Dorset LEA policy for admissions should applications for places exceed the school admission number. Offer letters will be sent out during April 2017. Dorset Admissions Policy 2017-18 All new parents and pupils will be invited to attend a meeting during the summer term before the child’s entry to school. Your child will have two induction afternoons during the summer term. Any parent wishing to visit the school should make an appointment through the school office. Please read our prospectus, and the handbook for parents and carers, which contains detailed information about school life, for current and prospective parents of pupils. Applications can be made online at http://www.dorsetforyou.com/Apply for a school place. For more information please read the Dorset Admissions Guide above and see the interactive map of catchment areas. We are part of the Sherborne pyramid of schools and most children in year 6 move on to join the Gryphon School.
