Places for Reception Class September 2021

Cranbourne Primary School admits children between the ages of four and eleven and admits 30 children each year. As a maintained school, our admissions are managed by Bracknell Forest Council. We have no influence over their decisions and allocation of places. In the first instance please contact Bracknell Forest Admissions. 

Parents requesting a Reception Class place are welcome to come to one of our Reception Class tours.  These are usually held in October, November, December and January each academic year.  Due to the current COVID-19 situation these dates have not yet been arranged.   We are putting together a video tour of our school which will be released soon - watch this space!


Prospective Parents:

If your child was born on or between the 01 September 2016 – 31 August 2017 then you can now apply for your child to start school (Reception) for September 2021.
