Local Authority admissions (up until 31.8.21)
Our school is currently a community school, and admission arrangements are determined by the local authority (LA). The Admissions Authority for our school is Hillingdon Borough Council, which publishes its entry regulations every year.
To apply to Hermitage, please use the link: www.hillingdon.gov.uk/primary - this will take you to Hillingdon's admissions site which informs parents how to apply for a place at the school. Parents have a right to express their preference, but this does not, in itself, guarantee a place at that particular school. Applications can be made online. Admissions arrangements for community schools can be found here
From September 2021, Hermitage Primary School becomes an academy, part of Vanguard Learning Trust and will be responsible for its own admissions.
In-year admissions (From September 2021)
For pupils from Reception to Year 6
Hermitage Primary is its own Admissions Authority which means you can apply directly to us. We work closely with Hillingdon Admissions Team who will relay any applicants who have specified Hermitage as a preferred choice.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for an application form and return it to Mrs K Duarte or contact her on 01895 234871 during school hours.
Hermitage manages its own admissions for the nursery. Children are admitted into nursery in the term/half term after their third birthday, subject to the availability of places.
Parents may register their child from birth.
Applications can be made at any time in the school year and parents will be notified by the school of offers of places at the earliest opportunity. Parents may express a preference for a morning or afternoon place - in the event of an oversubscription for either morning or afternoon places, the admissions criteria detailed below will apply.
If parents are unsuccessful in obtaining a nursery place they can be put on a waiting list and informed when a place is available.
Parents must register their child separately for nursery and primary school - securing a place at nursery does not guarantee a place in Reception.
Even if your child is at Hermitage Nursery, you must apply for a place in Reception. The deadline for applications is 15th January 2022.
Parents must apply directly to Hillingdon Council here
