Applying for a place in Reception 2023 at Loxwood Primary School:

In the Autumn term, prior to the year your child is due to start school, you will receive information from West Sussex County Council (WSCC) to apply for a place at your local catchment school.  Please visit https://www.westsussex.gov.uk/education-children-and-families/schools-and-colleges/school-places/apply/starting-school-places/ for more information regarding this.  All school places are administered via an online application. If you do not have access to the internet, our School Office can assist you with filling in the form online.  The form must be returned to WSCC by the 15th January 2023.


It is extremely important that you apply for a school place online.  If you don't apply you may not get a school of your choice. It is always recommended, that you put down three choices of schools that you would like your child to potentially go to.

You will receive notification directly from WSCC informing you which school your child has a place at in April 2023.   

Applying for a place if you live in Surrey:

If you live in Surrey, but would like a place at our school, you will need to contact Surrey School Admissions Teams directly on 03002 001004 and request a paper application form.  On this you can put Loxwood school down as your first choice and then send this back to them.  Their Admissions line is open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm.
