Admissions

Welcome to Mereworth Community Primary School

At Mereworth, we know that finding the best possible primary school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. To help you have as much information as possible, we will be holding open mornings for prospective parents during November and December 2022.

These sessions will include a tour of the school and provide a relaxed and informal opportunity to meet key members of staff including the Head Teacher and Reception Class teacher, and ask questions.

Open morning dates will be confirmed by early October 2022. You will then be able to book a space by calling 01622 812569 or by emailing office@mereworth.kent.sch.uk with your name, contact details, your child’s name and date of birth, and your preferred open morning date.
