Joining Our School

Starting Junior School

At this time, you will be considering your child’s transfer to Year 3 in September 2022. You will shortly be notified by Hampshire County Council of your child’s junior school place.  Once your child has been allocated a place at Cove Junior School, we will be in touch will you to confirm our transition events which will take place in the summer term.

Moving to our school during the school year

We understand that it is sometimes necessary for you to move your child to a new school during the school year due to a house move, because you are a Service Family, or you feel that your child’s current school is not right for them.

If you are thinking of moving to Cove Junior School we would like to invite you and your child to come and visit the school.  School tours can be arranged by calling the School Office on 01252 542941. 

If you decide that you would like to apply to Cove Junior School you will need to apply through Hampshire County Council’s website by clicking the link below.

Comments from our parents

Comments from our new Year 3 parents about our transition process

” We felt welcomed into the school.”

“Having a tour of the school in small groups and being able to talk through concerns with our child’s teacher before starting was very reassuring to both myself and my son.”

“….my daughter was so excited to start as she had been able to see inside the school, and see her teachers on 2 occasions prior to starting (show round and picnic).”

“Wonderful to have the family picnic, so children could feel relaxed in the school environment and see their classrooms to settle nerves prior to starting.”

“I think you put other schools in the area to shame with the level of care that has gone into everything since they started. We are really very happy.”
