Foundation Stage places

Applying for a primary school place in Gloucestershire children start school in the school year in which they turn 5. Abbeymead Primary School is a primary school and has pupils aged 4 to 11 in 7 year groups from Foundation Stage through to Year 6.

The majority of applications for Foundation Stage are made between October and January for intake in September.
