If you have not done so, please contact Wiltshire Council School Admissions Team as soon as possible, in order to make a late application (see below).

Admissions to Fynamore

We have 2 classes of 30 children in each year, giving 60 places per year. There are therefore 14 classes with 420 available places in total at Fynamore. Wiltshire Council is the admitting authority for our school. For further information please contact the school office or contact Wiltshire Council here or telephone on 01225 713000. 


Our Admission Policy follows that of the Wiltshire Local (Education) Authority. For Reception pupils, this means all children start school in the September following their 4th birthday. 


We are happy to show prospective parents round the school before they make an application. Please contact the school office to make an appointment.

Admission and Oversubscription Criteria

The full Local Authority admission critera, applicable to Fynamore School, can be accessed by clicking here


If there are more applications than places available, then the straight-line distance from the child’s home address to the school will be used as a tie-break. Those living closest to the school will be given priority. When two or more children with the same priority for admission live exactly the same distance from the school, the available places will be decided by random allocation (casting lots).


Part Time Entry in Reception

The beginning of the school year is a very tiring time for new Reception pupils. Therefore, all Reception pupils attend school on a part time basis for the first few weeks of September. After this period, all children will be able to attend school on a full time basis. However, parents of Reception children who will be 5 after 31 March in their Reception year are offered the opportunity of remaining part time until just before Christmas.

Visits to School before Applying

We do not hold an open day at Fynamore, but prospective parents are encouraged to telephone to make an appointment to visit the school and take a tour with the Headteacher. Please telephone the School Office on 01249 810090 to make an appointment.


Mid-Year and Non-Reception Admissions

If you would like to apply to transfer your child/ren to Fynamore, we recommend that you telephone the school on 01249 810090 to check whether places are available in the required year groups, and to make an appointment to view the school. Wiltshire Council admission forms are available from the school office.
