Millbrook Combined School provides education for children aged 2-11 on the western side of High Wycombe. The capacity of the school is 510. The intended admission number to Reception for the school year 2015-2016 is 90.
Each Nursery class has a capacity of 39. Children are admitted the term following their 3rd birthday, we currently admit in September, January and April. The Nursery offers five morning sessions or five afternoon sessions each week. To apply for a Nursery place, please obtain an application form from the school office.
Traditionally, pupils have started Reception at Millbrook in the September of the school year during which their 5th birthday falls. We recognise that this is not always appropriate for all children and happily discuss start dates on an individual basis as required.
We encourage all parents of new pupils to visit the school before their child starts. This enables them to meet the Head Teacher and tour the school during a normal working day.
In addition, we offer home visits to the parents of children joining our Nursery class. We also hold an induction session for the new Reception class intake at the beginning of July for those new to the school. This is an opportunity for the children to have their first experience of being in the classroom. Before this, we hold an induction meeting for parents to find out more about the school.
For further information on Reception admissions, please refer to the Buckinghamshire County Council Website. Please note that even if your child attends the Millbrook Combined School Nursery class, the County Council requires you to apply for a Reception place separately. Being in the Nursery does not automatically give your child a place in Reception.
Whilst we welcome informal approaches to the school for in-year admissions, the County Council now administers the in-year admissions for all community schools. If you would like your child to come to Millbrook Combined School, please speak to us and we can direct you to the relevant paperwork.
