School Tours

It is really hard for parents to make a decision about their child's future school when COVID-19 restrictions apply. We want to help parents to understand what The Coombes is all about.

To do this you are welcome to attend virtual open evenings at 1800 on Wednesday 30 September, Wednesday 14 October, Wednesday 4 November, Wednesday 9 December, Wednesday 6 January and a final opportunity on Wednesday 21 April.

To book a place at one of these events please click on the button below.

Reception Places for September 2021

Visit The Coombes - Monday April 19th

We would like to offer all September 2021-2022 Reception Year children and their parents or carers the opportunity to visit The Coombes on Monday April 19th. Please click here to complete the form indicating your interest in attending this event. There will be more information to follow closer to the time.

Children are welcomed into school at the beginning of the year that they are five. If you would like your child to join our school in the Reception Year starting in September 2021 please apply to Wokingham Borough Council. Applications for the 2021 to 2022 school year open on 13 November 2020. You can register your child's details with school admissions on the Citizen Portal, to receive reminder emails about when to apply for a school place.

Please read the parent's guide to starting primary school (PDF) document). This contains all statutory information you need to know about applying for a school place.

All children are welcome to stay full-time after the first week, but if parents of summer born children wish them to start part-time only, this can be discussed with the class teacher.

Parents are notified if their application has been successful or unsuccessful at the beginning of the Summer Term.

Full details and information for the academic year 2021-22 can be found on the Wokingham Borough website. We are delighted that you are considering The Coombes Church of England Primary School as the school for your child!
