Usually, all children intending to start their education at Ash Hill will be integrated into school through involvement in an open afternoon visit during the summer term to get to know their teacher and become familiar with the school. The Early years Leader and Reception staff also carry out a home visit in order to build a positive relationship within an environment that is familiar to your child. 

The Headteacher and Reception teacher hold a meeting in the summer term to share information with parents about the school, including: the expectations, curriculum and uniform, and also to answer any questions. In the autumn term, parents will be invited into a curriculum information meeting which explains our approaches to learning in more detail.

All applicants must fill in the Local Education Authority application form. These forms are now sent directly to Aylesbury who complete the admissions procedure. Once this has been done parents are informed by letter whether their application has been successful.
