Thank you for showing an interest in the Whiteoak Academies of Hannah More Infants and Grove Juniors. Admissions to our schools are co-ordinated by the Local Authority: North Somerset Council, on behalf of the Lighthouse Schools Partnership.

All enquiries should be made to North Somerset Admissions - their website pages can be found at:

Further information regarding admission to LSP schools can be found on the LSP Website.

Each year, the LA produce a comprehensive guide to school admissions. A copy can be found on their website or downloaded below. This will provide lots of answers to many of the questions you may have regarding admissions.

There are 60 places available each year for new admissions in Reception. Pupils in Year 2 at Hannah More are automatically allocated one of the 60 places at Grove Junior in Year 3; however, they must all apply for a place.  Each year the local authority produces a guide to applying to Junior School which can be downloaded below.  Those coming to Grove Junior from another school must apply for a place as outlined in the guide below.

If you are interested in coming to see either school 'in action', please contact the School Office on 01275 851127.  

For admissions to year groups other than Reception and Year 3, please contact North Somerset admissions who will be able to assist.
