How to join Hilperton CE Primary School


We warmly welcome visits from prospective families. As a Voluntary Controlled (VC) school in Wiltshire, the Local Authority (Wiltshire Council) is the admitting authority which can offer a place at Hilperton CE Primary School. The Headteacher and staff are always happy to show families around our school, but the official offer of a place remains with the Council.


Every local authority-maintained school has a pupil admission number (PAN) which sets a limit to how many children the school is obliged to admit into its reception class each year. It is often used a broad indicator of year group size for other year groups. Currently our PAN is 25. 


We follow the Wiltshire admissions process and the application process is now underway for September 2024. All parents who live in Wiltshire will need to apply for their child to attend a primary or secondary school. You can do this online by following this link (click here to apply online) or by completing a paper application, which can be found below. This form must be returned to Wiltshire Council. 


The deadline for secondary school applications is 31st October 2023.


The deadline for primary school applications is 15th January 2024.


Information for parents/carers of children in Y1-6 wishing to start at Hilperton:


For children wishing to join the school mid-year or at any point Y1-Y6, please see LA guidance ‘Apply for an In Year Transfer’.  If you decide to proceed you must complete and return the "In Year Application Form" as instructed (this form can be found below) and return to the Local Authority. You cannot complete this application online.
