As a Voluntary Aided Church of England school, Knightlow's admissions arrangements are set by the governing body. However, all applications for places must be made through Warwickshire's admissions department, with whom we work closely to ensure places are allocated fairly and as outlined in our policy (see below). There are 30 places available in Reception and Key Stage 1, and 32 places available in Key Stage 2 (years 3 to 6), with unsuccessful applicants invited to appeal for an additional place if their child is in Key Stage 2 only. Any appeals are made through the Diocesan Board of Education, who will be happy to provide more advice on appeal dates and deadlines. 

Primarily, the school provides places for all those children of Bourton, Frankton, Marton, Princethorpe and Stretton-on-Dunsmore who apply, and governors ensure that these children are given priority when places are allocated. Additional places are then offered according to the school's priority criteria, which you can view in detail in the Admissions Policy.  Please be aware that, if you are applying for a place on faith grounds, you must submit the supplementary faith form, which can be downloaded as a PDF or which is available as a paper copy from the school.

If you would like your child to attend Knightlow, please contact us to discuss this further and to view the school. Visitors are always welcome!
