Final tour date: Wednesday 9th January 2019, 9.30am.

To book a place, please call us on 0117 3790888


The Head or Senior Teacher will show you around the classes, explain what an Educate Together school is like and how we differ to other schools. You will be able to see work children do and activities they can take part in. Spaces are limited to ensure that you have plenty of opportunity to ask questions and also to make sure we don't disrupt the classes too much. We recommend you visit without your child at this stage as there will be plenty of opportunity for them to visit later. This means you, and other parents, can get more out of your visit. Visits last approximately one hour.

Somerdale  Educate Together has 30 available reception places. Applications for reception class places must be made to the council as part of the Co-ordinated Admissions Scheme.Applying online is the simplest way to apply and also allows you to change your preferences up until the closing date which is 15 January prior to the year of admission for primary admissions. Applications must be submitted online at:

If the school receives more than 30 applications for spaces an over-subscription criteria will be applied to allocate spaces. Further details can be found in our admissions policy .
