Admissions are open!

Sep 14, 2017

 

With great pleasure, we’d like to announce that admissions are open, so you can now apply for a place at Mariposa Primary School for September 2018! For more information about the process and to apply, please see our admissions page.

 

An extra choice

Don’t forget, because we are a new school, we are an extra choice, so you can apply to us in addition to applying through the coordinated admissions process run by the council. Applying to Mariposa will not affect any other application you might make. If you are fortunate to receive two school offers, you will then be able to decide which offer to accept.

Don’t delay

The deadline for applications is 15th January, but the Department for Education will be asking for regular updates on application numbers, to assess our readiness to open. So if you think you’d like to apply, please submit your application as soon as you’re able to.

Open Evenings

We are finalising the details of our open evenings, which will be held in October and December. Please look out for details, or if you have any questions in the meantime, please email or call us.

An update on planning

Following our email in the Summer about our planning application, a number of people have been asking for an update. There are ongoing discussions between Harrow Council and senior Civil Servants from the Department for Education. We are hopeful that these discussions will conclude soon, and as our building and site plans are more or less complete, we should be in a position to submit our planning application relatively quickly.

Our opening in September 2018 is still subject to planning permission being granted, so we’d like to get a planning decision before school place offers are made in April. As there won’t be enough time to complete the building of our brand new school in time for opening, we would plan to open in temporary accommodation, on our Pinner View site, allowing the children to watch the school take shape.

If you have any questions about the admissions process, planning, or anything else please feel free to get in touch.

We look forward to receiving your application.

It is with great sadness that we have to announce that Mariposa Primary School will not be able to open in September 2018, and we are unable at present to give any certainty about what our opening year will be.
