Admissions Update - COVID-19


Further to Government advice, we have closed both sites to all children other than those specified by the Department for Education.


As such, we are unable to show you around our lovely little school at the moment.  However, should you wish to discuss an application, or would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Wrigley at


We look forward to meeting with you as soon as possible. 

Thank you for considering a place here at St James and St John C of E School.  We understand that the admissions process can appear a little daunting and will do all we can to answer your questions and to make any transitions as smooth as possible.


      Our admission policy is determined by the County Council and we are very fortunate to be able to offer the following admission numbers:


We are always happy to show you around our lovely school and prefer to conduct individual tours rather than hold open days.  We feel this gives you to opportunity to see the school at its best and gives us chance to enjoy getting to know you and your child.  During the tour we'll be able to answer your question and discuss any concerns you may have at this important time.  You'll also be able to have a good look around the school building and begin to familiarise yourself with the layout.


If, after your visit, you decide that St James and St John is the right fit for your family, you will need to apply for a place though the Local Authority in which you live.  If you live in Buckinghamshire, you can apply online at  While this application does need to be made by you, we will do all we can to help you.


Significant dates for Admissions in 2020 are as follows:


4th November 2019 Primary Portal opens for Buckinghamshire residents only.  You will be able to submit your online applications from this date
15th January 2020 Primary Portal closes at 3pm. You will no longer be able to submit online applications after this date
16th April 2020 National Primary Allocations Day.  You will be notified of your child's school place allocation by email if you have applied online.  Letters will be posted to applications made on paper on this date


If you wish to apply for a place after the normal transfer time, then you need to complete an ‘in year’ admission form from your own Local Authority. If you live in Buckinghamshire this can be downloaded from the Buckinghamshire County Council Website.
