Apply for a school place at Bilton Infant School

The published admission number for Bilton Infant School is 60, affording us up to two classes of 30 pupils. Our Admissions Policy is in line with that of Warwickshire County Council. Applications should be made between September and January in the year before your child turns 4 years of age using the link below.  Warwickshire schools do not hold waiting lists as applications are made via WCC.


The admission criteria are in order of priority:


  1. Children in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, a local authority and children who were looked after, but ceased to be so because they were adopted (or became subject to a residence order or special guardianship order).
  2. Children living in the priority area who have a brother or sister at the school at the time of admission.
  3. Children living in the priority area who have a brother or sister at the partner junior school (or    primary school) at the time of admission.
  4. Other children living in the priority area.
  5. Children from outside the priority area who have a brother or sister at the school at the time of admission.
  6. Children from outside the priority area who have a brother or sister at the junior school (or primary school) at the time of admission.
  7. Other children from outside the priority area.

Within each criterion, priority is given in order of straight line distance between the child’s home and the school (shortest distance = highest priority).  Distance will be calculated by the straight line measurement from the applicant’s home address location to the centre point of the preferred school. (All measurements are subject to slight change due to updates of mapping data).



For families who accept a school place for  September, we offer a programme of visits and events to help you and your child settle successfully into our school. Parents are also invited to attend an Induction Evening where you will be provided with information about starting school and a Starting School Pack to assist you with this important time. For the last 3 years we have had 100% satisfaction responses from our new families.

Children can transfer into our school during the academic year, if spaces are available.  Admissions and in year transfers are made through Warwickshire County Council following their policy.   They can be contacted on Admissions (Eastern area) on 01926 414143 or via the link above.


We  encourage families to look around the school and discuss arrangements prior to accepting a place or starting school with us.
