Richard Hill Church of England Primary School


If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below.

First time admissions to school are not automatic so all parents need to apply to the local authority where they live for a place at their preferred school even if it is for their child to attend the catchment area school for the home address. If you live within the County we would advise and encourage you to make an online application at:  It is quick and easy and an emailed receipt is sent so you can be sure it has gone through correctly.  You will also be able to view and update the application up until the closing date and to view the results online on the offer date. 

If you live within Leicester City you must make your application to Leicester City Council at  You will need to apply to Leicester City Council naming Richard Hill School as your preferred school.  Leicester City Council and Leicestershire County Council and the school will then liaise with one another to make allocation decisions.

The deadline for applications to Leicestershire County Council is 15th January and decisions will be notified to you by post or email on 16th April depending on how you made your application.  Late applicants may not be offered a place at any of their preferred schools, or even their catchment school.

Information about primary schools and first time admissions is available on the Leicestershire County Council website - and the Leicester City Council website – together with much more information regarding education in Leicestershire and Leicester.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us or the relevant allocations departments.
