If your child was born between 1st September 2012 and 31st August 2013, you will need to apply for a school place starting in September 2017. The deadline for applications is Monday 16th January 2017.

We will be holding three open house sessions where you will have the opportunity to visit our school and meet Mrs Clark and the Senior Leadership Team. Please call the school office (01753 863502) if you wish to reserve a place at any of the sessions listed below:

Tuesday 27th September, 9.30am – Wednesday 19th October, 1.30pm – Thursday 17th November, 7pm.

Choosing a school

If you would like to visit Hilltop and meet our Headteacher, Mrs Clark, 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 2012 and 31st August 2013, you will need to apply for a place starting in September 2017 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 2017.  Please note that the Borough’s deadline for applications is 16th January 2017.

If your child was born before 1st September 2012,  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.
