Admissions

Rhyl is a Primary School for girls and boys between 5 and 11 years old, with a nursery class for children under 5. Our school is part of Camden Local Education Authority and our children are drawn almost exclusively from the local community. Camden has some of the very best primary schools in the country and these pages should tell you everything you need to know about them. More information can be found by clicking on the image below.

If you wish to apply for a place for your child at Rhyl, you will need to complete an application form, available from the school office. Before a child is admitted an appointment to meet the Head Teacher is made and parents and children have a tour of the school. The child must accompany the parent to the admission interview. Proof of identity such as a passport or birth certificate for the child and proof of address for the parent must also be available at the interview with the Head Teacher. Applications for Reception places must be made through Camden LEA.

Completing the application form does not necessarily guarantee a place at the school for your child. In the event of over-subscription the following criteria will be applied:

  1. Camden residents with a Statement of Special Educational Needs under the 1981 Education act naming the school, or children resident in other LAs for whom the school is named in their statement with the agreement of Camden LA.
  2. Children whose brothers and sisters are now on the roll of the school.
  3. Children whom the Director of Education accepts have a particular medical condition or special social need, which the school is particularly able to meet.
  4. Children who live nearest the school, measured by the LA.

Parents of Nursery children should note that a separate application has to be made to the Admissions Department of Camden LA for a place in the Reception Year. A place in the Nursery does not guarantee a place in Reception.

Reception children are admitted in the September of the school year when they turn 5 years of age. Nursery children can be admitted the term following their 3rd birthday.
