Admissions to Boxgrove



Surrey County Council - Consultation on admission arrangements for Surrey's community and voluntary controlled schools for 2021

Surrey County Council - Getting Ready for School 

Boxgrove is an Academy co-educational school for children aged 4 - 11 years old and is situated on the east side of Guildford (between Burpham and Merrow). We are a three form entry school with a Published Admittance Number (PAN) of 90. 

In Surrey, children must start full-time education no later than the beginning of the term following their fifth birthday with the exception of summer born children who must take up their place at the beginning of the term of their fifth birthday (Summer term).  The Governing Body has approved the following admission criteria to be used to allocate places when the school is oversubscribed (in priority order):

FIRST Looked After and Previously Looked After Children.
SECOND Exceptional Arrangements.
THIRD Siblings with a brother or sister still attending the school at the time of admissions.
FOURTH Nearest School – the nearest school is defined as the school closest to their home address admitting pupils of the appropriate age range, as measured by a straight line.  The nearest school may be either inside or outside the county boundary.
FIFTH  Any other applicant.


If there is oversubscription in any of the above criteria priority will be given on the basis of nearness to school measured in a straight line from the address point of the pupil’s house, as set by Ordnance Survey to the nearest school gate for pupils to use.  This is calculated using the Admission and Transport team’s Geographical Information system.  For full details of our policy, please click here. 


To apply for a place for your child in current school years (Reception to Year 6), please contact Catherine McManus on 01483 563701, or email  to see if we have any places vacant.  The waiting lists for each year are held by the school and we would require you to complete our
