Choosing a school

If you would like to visit Hilltop and meet our Headteacher, Ms Bima, please contact the school office.  We are always delighted to show prospective parents and pupils around, and to answer any questions you may have.  We have also produced a leaflet called Choosing a School which you may find generally helpful when looking at schools.

As part of your visit you will be given a copy of our school prospectus.  Or you can phone the school office and ask them to send you a copy.  All the prospectus information is also available on this website – see Prospectus.


Applications for Foundation Stage 1 (Nursery) places:

Admission to the Hilltop Foundation Stage 1 (FS1 / Nursery) class is dealt with by the school, and a Registration of Interest form should be completed and returned to us with a copy of the child’s birth certificate.  Children who are offered a place will normally start school at the beginning of the term after they have reached the age of 3. Places in FS1 are offered in accordance with the Foundation Stage Admission Criteria.


Applications for Foundation Stage 2 (Reception year) places and above:

The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead admissions team deals centrally with all applications from children of statutory school age for all the Borough’s schools:

If your child’s date of birth is between 1st September 2013 and 31st August 2014, you will need to apply for a place starting in September 2018 at any of the Borough’s schools, including Hilltop, by completing the Borough’s Common Application Form (CAF) for Entry to Primary/First schools.  If your application is successful, your child will start his/her FS2 (Reception) year at Hilltop in September 2018.  Please note that the Borough’s deadline for applications is 15th January 2018.

If your child was born before 1st September 2013,  your application will be for a place in Year 1 or above.  The Borough’s admission team also manages these applications, which are called In Year Applications.  You will be notified by the admissions team if a place is available at Hilltop and then arrangements will be made for the child to visit us, for you to buy uniform and for a starting date to be agreed.
