Darley Dene Primary School Achieving and Caring

Applying for school places

Starting school in 2019, applying for a place.


If you have a child born between 1st September 2014 and 31st August 2015 you will need to apply for their school place, the admission process starts in October 2018.


If your child is in our nursery they are not automatically eligible to go into the school, and the school admissions criteria will still be applied to them as per the guidelines set out by Surrey County Council. You must therefore still apply for a placement through Surrey County Council if you would like your child to start in the main school.


To apply for a place in our Reception class next year you can apply between 29 October and 15 January with Surrey County Council, please follow the link (or copy and paste into your search bar) below
