Infant School Admissions


Parents need to apply via West Berkshire LA to secure a school place. Application forms are available from the school office and the Local Authority (LA). Children will be admitted to full time education the September following their fourth birthday. Preference for admission is given to children living within the area normally served by the school. Other requests are considered according to the criteria and procedures set out in the LA's 'School Admission Guide'.


Junior School Admissions


Most children transfer from Parsons Down Infant School to Parsons Down Junior School. Parents will, however, still need to apply via West Berkshire LA to secure a school place at Parsons Down Junior School, even though the two schools are federated. Application forms will be given to PDI pupils in the Autumn Term of Year 2.


Children join our Junior School at the beginning of the academic year during which they are eight years of age. The admissions criteria are set by the Local Authority. 


Please refer to the West Berks LA and our Admissions Policy for further information.
