Reception Admissions (Age 4+)

We offer 60 places for Reception, and parents/carers of Nursery children must re-apply for a spot. All applications are handled through Surrey County Council's admissions portal at Surrey County Council Admissions. Please see details of our Open Days or call our school office to arrange a tour with the Headteacher.


Year 3 Admissions (Age 7+)

We provide 60 additional places for children outside Sandcross Primary. Children already enrolled at Sandcross will automatically secure a place in Year 3. If you're interested in Year 3 or any other year group, admission is possible if there are available spaces.

To initiate the admission process for Nursery, contact our school office directly. For all other year groups, please reach out to Surrey County Council, who manages admissions for our school. You can find more information on admissions here.


In-Year Admissions (Year 1, Year 2, Year 4, Year 5, and Year 6)

We welcome children at any point during the year if there are openings within their desired year group. We encourage you to start by contacting the school to schedule a tour with our Headteacher. This allows us to understand your reasons for transferring and better support your child's transition.

All applications must be made through Surrey County Council at Surrey County Council Admissions.

If you wish to visit our school and meet our dedicated team, please consider attending one of our Open Mornings, where our Headteacher will be delighted to meet you.
