Primary Admissions

We warmly welcome all admissions to Honeybourne Primary School.

Reception Admissions

Applications for a place in Reception should be made through the local authority in which your child lives. Please click here to visit the Worcestershire County Council website.

If you need any help with this, please contact Emma Cowley in the school office on

Children are normally admitted in the September in the year in which they reach their fifth birthday. The local authority will admit children up to the school’s Pupil Admissions Number, which in our case is 30 children.

When there are more applications than places, children are admitted in the order of priority according to our Admissions Policy. Please visit our Policies page for more details.

Main School Admissions

Our planned admission number for each year group is 30.

Honeybourne Primary School aims to educate every child holistically and follows the Code of Admissions where all places are allocated in an open and fair way.

We fulfil the government’s requirement to restrict Early Years and Key Stage 1 classes to a maximum of 30.

In-Year Admissions

Requests for admission made after the normal round of admissions, from 1 September, should be made directly to the local authority.

Pupils can readily be admitted if there are fewer children in the year group than the Pupil Admissions Number.

If a school place can not be offered, parents may appeal this decision by contacting the Head of School, Rachel Evans-Cook. Please read our Admissions Policy for details of appeal processes.

Waiting Lists

As an academy school, Honeybourne holds its own waiting list.

You should be aware that a school waiting list is an active document. As parents request for their children to be included on the list, the position of an individual child already on the list can change. A waiting list does not give priority based simply on the date an application was added to the list.
