Admissions to Reception

Children join the Reception class in the academic year in which they become five.  In September 2021 we will be offering 90 Reception places.


All children join at the start of the Autumn Term.  They will be eased in on a part-time basis (8.50am - 12 noon) for the first couple of weeks, moving to full-time (8.50am - 3.15pm) by the end of September.


Applications are made on-line via the Richmond Borough website www.richmond.gov.uk/primary_school_admissions


Applications are not made to the school.


The closing date for applications for September 2021 entry will be 15 January 2021. 


Collis School receives far more applications than there are places available.  Places are, therefore, allocated by the Local Authority according to its admission policy. Please refer to the Admission to Richmond's Primary Schools Brochure for more information.


Please note:  Admission to Nursery does not guarantee a Reception place.  This is a separate application.


National offer day is 16th April 2021.  Online applicants will be sent an email during the evening informing them of the result of their application.  


Parents have the right to appeal to the LA if their application has not been successful.
