Pound Hill Infant Academy introduces THE MASKED READER

To celebrate 25 Years of World Book Day, 3 different teachers have read their favourite story disguised behind a mask.  

All Year 2 pupils do need to apply for their choice of Junior school, this would be via West Sussex Admissions. You can apply if your child is due to start junior school in September 2022. Information about how to make an application and a link to the online admissions system will be available from 9.00am on Monday 4 October 2021. The deadline for applications is Saturday 15 January 2022.

If your child attends Pound Hill Infant Academy you will not automatically receive a place at Pound Hill Junior School. However once you have applied, when West Sussex Admissions review applications those already attending Pound Hill Infant Academy take priority as Pound Hill Junior School is a feeder school.
