The catchment for Cadmore School encompasses many of the beautiful villages close to Cadmore End. However, the majority of our pupils come from further a field, such as Bolter End, Piddington, Wheeler End, Studley Green, Lane End, Wycombe and Stokenchurch.

 We have two formal points of entry, taking 14 new pupils in Reception and a small number of additional pupils in year 3.



Applications to Nursery are considered and managed by the governors by application direct to school according to a separate admissions policy which can be found on our Nursery page.


In order to transfer to Reception, the LA application process must be followed. This may mean that a child could join Nursery before the LA allocation process is completed, however we cannot guarantee a place in Reception to those joining Nursery - the governors must operate the admissions process in accordance with legislation. However, to date all children have transferred from Nursery to Reception. Please speak to the headteacher about these transfers.  


Reception and Year 3

If you are interested in a place for your child starting school for the first time at Cadmore End Church of England School then please contact us to arrange a visit or look out for adverts on social media and in local magazines. In order to apply for a place you will need to complete the application process via the Local Authority, Buckinghamshire County Council.   

The Governing Body of the school is responsible for decisions relating to admissions, but works closely with the Local Authority who co-ordinate admissions to all schools in Buckinghamshire.  A copy of our admissions policy is available below.

Reception entry in 2022/23 will be open to all children born between 1st September 2017 and 31st August 2018. The number of admissions for the academic year commencing 1st September 2022 is 14.  Applications should be made via Buckinghamshire County Council.  The closing date for applications is 3pm on January 15th 2022. Please contact the Local Authority regarding any late applications.  



There are established arrangements for appeals against non-admission. Details are available from the school, including the date by which an appeal should be submitted.

It should be noted that, in the event of an unsuccessful appeal against non-admission to the school, the school does not consider any further application in the same school year (1 September – 31 August), unless there has been a material change in circumstances, for example a change of address which results in a move from outside the catchment area to inside it.
