Choosing a school for one’s child is an important decision. Parents with children in local First Schools will receive an invitation to attend our Prospective Parents Open Evening held in the Autumn Term. This provides an opportunity to meet the staff and take a guided tour of the school. However, it is often possible to get a feel for a school by visiting during the daytime when the children are in school. Therefore, in addition to the Open Evening, Dedworth Middle holds two Open Mornings when any parent or guardian is welcome to visit the school and see Dedworth Middle in action. The Head Teacher is only too happy to provide prospective parents with a guided tour. Please contact the school office for an appointment. Pupils will be admitted to Dedworth Middle school without reference to ability or aptitude.
Admissions to Dedworth Middle School fall into two categories:
1. Admission at the start of Year 5
2. Admission during Years 5 – 8 which is known as an in-year transfer.
