Mid-Year Transfers

Dean Church of England School does have available spaces in most year groups for those moving into the area or wishing to transfer from another school. However we are only able to admit new pupils at the start of a new term, unless the move is due to a house move or other exceptional circumstances.  If you wish to enquire about a place during the course of the school year, please call us on 01946 861408.
