If you have a child who will be due to start school at the beginning of the next school year, you must apply for a place for them even if you want them to attend your local Primary or Infant School. You can apply online or by completing the Hampshire common application form (CR2) which is available from school.
In September 2020 the Published Admission Number (PAN) will enable 60 children to be admitted to the Reception Class. This is the maximum number of children who can be accepted for Year R except in very special circumstances. It is therefore important that parents or carers of prospective pupils submit their applications by the published deadline (which will be midnight on 15th January 2020 for the Autumn 2020 entry). Late applications can only be considered if there are still places available. Children with parents or carers living in the catchment area will normally be given priority over those outside the catchment area but only if their application is submitted before the published closing date.
Children of parents and carers living outside the catchment area may be offered a place if spaces are available.
Our catchment area is a rectangle bounded on the north side by the main railway line, on the east by the A325, on the south by the airfield and on the west by Cove Brook (plus a small triangle in the top left corner to take in Nash Close and Cove Road from the brook to West Heath roundabout).
If you are unsure whether you are in this area, you can check by entering your postcode into the Hampshire school catchment area finder.
If your child is currently at an Infant School and you would like them to transfer to Tower Hill in Year 3 rather than their linked Junior School then you are advised first to contact the Head Teacher about the likely availability of places. Follow this link for details of the procedure for applying for a place in Year 3 in a Primary School.
Applications outside the normal admission time
Parents and carers moving into the area part way through the school year should contact the Head Teacher as early as possible for advice on availability of places.
