We hope you will be considering Downs Way Infant school for your child in reception 2018. Please do take the opportunity to come and see what we can offer. 

As you know the school is about to be amalgamated with St Mary’s C of E Junior School.

 Because requesting a place at Downs Way will result in a place at the primary school we are encouraging all prospective parents to attend the Open Evening at St Mary’s School on Wednesday 22nd November. The school prefects will be giving guided tours of the school starting at 7pm. Teachers will be available in classrooms to talk about learning at St Mary’s. There will be a presentation by the Head Teacher at 8pm, and opportunities to ask questions about admissions if required.

If you would like to experience St Mary’s in action you are welcome to come along on the Open Morning on Tuesday 21st November -  when families applying for places in year 3 are also invited to attend. 

For entry into reception in September 2018 you need to apply for a place at Downs Way School - for which the general Surrey admissions criteria apply. 

On 1st September all children who have accepted a place will automatically be enrolled at the new school St Mary’s C of E Primary School, and will have a place at the school until the end of year 6.

 We do hope that you will consider choosing Downs Way/St Mary’s C of E Primary School for your child.
