Glenfield Infant School

together we are brilliant


Children born between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018 are able to start school in the school year beginning September 2022.  Applications are open until 11:59pm on 15th January 2022 and if you pay your council tax to Southampton City Council you need to apply for the space via your citizen portal account. If you do not have a portal account, you will need to create one. For full guidance go to Apply for a school place ( Please note that if you pay your council tax to another authority i.e. Hampshire County Council, you need to apply via their website.

We are pleased to be able to re-introduce our school tours at Glenfield, which were suspended during Covid-19 restrictions, the dates of our tours are set out below. We are keeping our tour groups small, this is to give you a more personal experience and to enable you to speak to the Headteacher if you have any questions, tours will last approximately 15 minutes. We request that only one adult and your Year R starter arrive for the tour and that you wear a mask while on the school site. This is to support us to minimise the Covid-19 risk for our school community.
