School Admissions

Victor Seymour Infants’ School is part of the Greenshaw Learning Trust and the Greenshaw Learning Trust is the admissions authority for the school.

The admissions process is administered by the school in accordance with our Admissions Arrangements.  To view the admission arrangements for the school, please see the documents listed below.

Victor Seymour Infants’ School has a published admissions number of 90 children for entry into Reception

Applications for Reception

Parents must submit their Common Application Form stating their preferred schools to the London Borough of Sutton.  Applications open on the 1st September and close of 15th January. The application form can be found here: www.sutton.gov.uk/applying_to_start_in_a_primary_school

If you are resident outside the London Borough of Sutton, you should apply through your own Local Authority.

In-Year Applications

Victor Seymour Infants' School is part of the London Borough of Sutton's Co-ordinated Admissions Scheme for In-Year Admissions.  Applications for admission to Reception after 1st September and for admission into Years 1 and 2 must be made to the Local Authority in which the school is situated using an In-Year Application Form.  If you wish to apply for a place at Victor Seymour Infants' School, you must name the school as one of your preferences on the application form and return it to the London Borough of Sutton.

Where there are more applicants than places available, the school will maintain a waiting list according to the oversubscription criteria detailed in the school’s admission arrangements without regard to the date the application was received or when a child’s name was added to the waiting list.

Positions on the waiting lists may go down as well as up.  This is because other children might be added to the waiting list who have a greater priority for a place against the school’s admission criteria; for example, when new families move into the area or when other families who had not previously named Victor Seymour Infants' School as a preference, ask to go on the waiting list after the initial allocations date.
