On Monday 17th of April, parents will learn where their child will be starting their primary school journey.


Today is National Allocation Day and offers for primary school places will be sent to parents and carers across the UK. For anyone who is feeling at all anxious about their child’s placement, we would like to help you ease any nerves.


To make your child's allocation process as smooth as possible we highly recommend that our new parents/carers accept their child’s placement offer with us as soon as you can. By doing this you can rest easy knowing your child will be attending our fantastic school.

Please keep in mind you may receive your offers at a later date if your application was made after the admissions deadline in January.


Once you have your offer you will need to accept it before the deadline of 28th April 2023. For more information follow this link: Swindon Allocation Information. We would also like to invite any prospective parents who are looking for their child to join us in the next academic year to apply now. We still have spaces available, so you are not too late!

At Gorse Hill, we help pupils develop into their best version of themselves. We accomplish this through our CARE values which are:

  • Courage
  • Appreciation
  • Respect & Responsibility
  • Excellence

By using these key values we help your child unlock their full potential.


We recognise that one of the most important stages of your child’s educational development is their time in Early Years. For this reason, we place extra effort into making our Early Years classes as welcoming and engaging as possible. If you would like more details on our classes and their curriculums please feel free to browse our Learning & Education pages: Our Reception Class


If your child has been offered a place at Gorse Hill Primary School, we ensure you won’t be disappointed. Accept your offer today and be sure to let us know they will be attending our fantastic School. We cannot wait to introduce you and your child to our team in September. We hope to see you soon!
