Welcome from the Headteacher

Thank you for considering Blackhorse Primary School for the Reception intake in September 2021. The admissions process is managed by South Gloucestershire Council and you can find out how to apply for any school in South Gloucestershire here


Each autumn we would usually hold open days so that you can come and have a look around Blackhorse Primary for yourselves. However, the current Covid-related restrictions have made this impossible so instead we will be holding several virtual meetings so that you can find out about starting school at Blackhorse. We will also be opening the school on Saturday 14th November so that you can take a look around the building in small groups.


These meetings will be held via zoom on:


If you would like to book one of these virtual meetings, please click on the link above


NEW: We will also be holding small, socially distanced, visits to the school on Saturday 14th November between 10am and 4pm. These will be in groups of no more than 6. Children sadly won't be able to attend these as we need to prioritise spaces for adults. We recommend that you attend this in addition to the virtual meetings above.


To book a small group tour on Saturday 14th November, PLEASE CLICK HERE.


You will also get a feel for our school by taking the virtual video tour. We know this can't replace seeing us in person (and we'd love to be able to show you round our school on a normal working day when we are once again allowed) but hopefully you'll get a feel for what the school stands for.
