At Sun Hill we aim to make the transition from infants to juniors as easy as possible, As soon as you have confirmed your child’s place we begin to get to know them, so by the time September comes they are familiar with the new surroundings and what is expected of them.
If you wish to apply for a school place to start at any other time or other year groups (an 'in-year' application) please contact the school to ascertain if space is available, then download an application form here. Further advice is also available from Hampshire Children’s Services.
