Starting Reception Sept 2021

Updated 22/10/20

Please apply for a place online. Unfortunately, due to Covid, Somerset Education Department have recommended that we do not hold open days/evenings. Therefore, we have produced some links below to help you make a decision about whether to send your child to High Ham. If guidance changes in the future, we will update the website.

Please have a look at the class twitter feed, it shows you the sort of activities the children will complete at school. @ashclasshh

Our school has six classes and we are in a lovely rural setting with extensive grounds and resources.

Dates for the 2020/21 academic year.


Where an application has been refused in any year group, the child will be placed on a waiting list. This will be kept strictly in order of oversubscription criteria by the Local Authority (as the Admission Authority) ​​​​​​ and the child will remain on the waiting list until the end of the academic year in which the application was refused.

Parents are responsible for informing the Admission Authority of any changes in their circumstances, which could affect their place on the waiting list.
