Admission arrangements

As a Local authority school, Hinton St George Church of England Primary School follows the guidelines of Somerset County schools.

A child can start school in the September of the year in which they are 5 years of age. Applications for admission to our school for a September intake is through the Somerset Council website link –

Our admission arrangements (somerset.gov.uk)

Mid-year applications for a place at the school can be made through the school. We advise you to contact the school for information about available places in year groups initially.

Visits to the school are always welcome, especially if you are looking for a place for your child. We have an extensive site for a village school which is not immediately apparent from the roadside aspect.

Over-subscription criteria

We accept siblings of those already in our school as priority along with those living within our catchment area, which covers the villages and environs of Hinton St George, Dinnington and Lopen.


If you are not offered a place at a school you prefer, you can appeal.

You cannot make an appeal until you have applied for a place at your preferred school and received a refusal letter or email.

If your application for a school place has been refused, you will be informed in your outcome email or letter of your legal right to appeal to an Independent Appeal Panel.

You can submit your appeal form online or you can download the Year of entry school admission appeal application form.

Please note that the School Admission Appeals Code requires that appellants set out their grounds for appeal in writing. For your appeal to be valid, you must include a reason for your appeal.
