How to apply for a place

We look forward to welcoming you to visit our school during 2021-22 academic year for our regular tours (Government COVID Guidance allowing).

During the pandemic we created a video which, we hope, gives you a flavour of our ‘Reception Resources’ and allows you to meet our ‘Team’, it’s just 5 minutes long so please do sit with your child and family members to watch ‘Welcome to Reception at Halley House School.’
