Admissions Policy 2024-25



Key information

All of our admissions are handled by Central Bedfordshire Council (CBC) – please contact them directly for applications to Houstone School. They can be contacted on 0300 300 8037 or you can apply online here: School admissions | Central Bedfordshire Council.

Once CBC has processed your application it will be forwarded to us here at Houstone School. A place will only be offered if we have not reached our optimum number in that year group.

A member of our Administration Team will then contact you to arrange an initial meeting. If we are unable to offer a place you will be contacted by CBC who will advise you on how to proceed.
