Reception Admissions

Bishop Gilpin is a two-form entry primary school admitting 60 children to Reception each year. We hold an open day for prospective parents to learn about the school and have a guided tour by our children during the Autumn Term each year.

Applications are made during the Autumn Term prior to your child entering primary school (Reception) at rising five years old through your home borough on the Common Application Form. For more information visit the London Borough of Merton website or email admissions@merton.gov.uk.
