Admission Arrangements


If you are considering Fingringhoe for your child, don’t just take our word for it. See what other parents say about life at our school:

‘We couldn’t have asked for a better experience and everyone was so kind and helpful, it made us feel that our son was being looked after and part of the school community from the start.’ Parent, 2023

‘Fingringhoe was our second choice however, if we had to choose again Fingringhoe would be by far our first choice. Our son has done so well in his first year; outstanding teaching and within a small setting that felt homely rather than large class sizes when children can sometimes feel lost.’ Parent, 2023

‘Our son was/is so happy at school…and we couldn’t be more grateful to our son’s teachers for making it the best experience for us all as a family.’ Parent, 2023

‘Children are given the chance to thrive and due to small Reception class size, our son had so many more chances to progress.’ Parent, 2023

‘Pupils are happy to attend this warm and welcoming school. Children in Reception benefit from the nurturing relationships they have with staff. This helps children to make a flying start and quickly settle into school life.’ Ofsted, 2023
