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


If your child was born between 1st September 2018 and 31st August 2019, you will need to apply for a school place starting in September 2023. The deadline for applications is Monday 16th January 2023.

Parents are invited to visit the school for a tour and the opportunity to meet our Headteacher, Ms Lynn Bima.  We are offer to a maximum of three sets of parents/carers at a time.  We ask that children other than babes in arms are not brought along for school tours.


Choosing a school

If you would like to visit Hilltop and meet our Headteacher please contact the school office on 01753 863502.  We strongly recommend that parents visit schools before making this very important decision.  We are always delighted to show prospective parents around, and to answer any questions you may have. You may find our leaflet called Choosing a School helpful when looking at schools.


Applications for Foundation Stage 1 (Nursery) places:


Admission to the Hilltop Foundation Stage 1 (FS1 / Nursery) class is dealt with by the school admin team.  A Registration of Interest form can be downloaded from this page or obtained by contacting the school office.  Please complete the form and returned it to us with a copy of the child’s birth certificate. Children who are offered a place will normally start school at the beginning of the academic year in which they turn 4.  Places in FS1 are offered in accordance with the Foundation Stage Admission Criteria.  Please see our Nursery Admissions Policy.


Applications for Foundation Stage 2 (Reception year) places and above:

The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead admissions team deals centrally with all applications from children of statutory school age for all the Borough’s schools:

If your child’s date of birth is between 1st September 2018 and 31st August 2019, you will need to apply for a place starting in September 2023 at any of the Borough’s schools, including Hilltop, by completing the Borough’s Common Application Form (CAF) for Entry to Primary/First schools. If your application is successful, your child will start his/her FS2 (Reception) year at Hilltop in September 2023.


If your child was born before 1st September 2017, your application will be for a place in Year 1 or above. The Borough’s admission team also manages these applications, which are called In Year Applications. You will be notified by the admissions team if a place is available at Hilltop and then arrangements will be made for the child to visit us, for you to buy uniform and for a starting date to be agreed.


Paper copies of all documents can be obtained from the school office free of charge.
