All schools must have admission arrangements that clearly set out how children will be admitted, including the criteria that will be applied if there are more applications than places at the school.

If you would like your child to attend our school, please download our current Admissions policy and see full details of Wiltshire County Council's admission arrangements at the bottom of this page - click on the coloured links to visit external pages.

2018/19 – proposed admission arrangements and admission numbers
Where changes are proposed to the admissions arrangements (including any supplementary information form) that will apply for admissions applications the following academic year, the admission authority must first publicly consult on those arrangements. 
The Trust Board of Salisbury Plain Academies is the admission authority and responsible for the admission arrangements of the School. 
We are consulting with parents and the local community to make sure our admission arrangements 2018'/19 meet future needs.
