Choosing a school is an important decision and we hope that the information provided on our website captures the essence of life at Richard Coates Church of England School.

From September 2017 we will be admitting children into Reception, Years 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. The closing date for applications into Reception was 15th January 2017  and for Year 5 it was 31st October 2016 . However, we still have a number of places available for Reception children. If you would like to discuss a place for your child, please do not hesitate to contact the school office.

The school is delighted to be able to offer Nursery places with provision that can suit a range of family circumstances, including 30 hour places. Please contact the school to find out more, or see our Nursery Admissions Policy.

Application Process
If you are interested in applying for an immediate transfer into any year group (e.g. if you are moving into the area or wish to change schools during the course of an academic year) please complete the immediate transfer form (see below) and send it to our school. We do have very limited spaces.
