Old Sodbury Church Of England Primary "Let your light shine" Matthew 5:16

Open Days for September 2021 Reception class Admissions will be in the Autumn Terms and will appear here.


As well as providing education to children  who live in the village, we also welcome many children and families from further afield such as Chipping Sodbury and Yate to our school family.

We are able to provide a outstanding small village school and community to families that live in the village and also larger urban areas.

If you would like to come and look around the school at any time, please give us a ring and we would be happy to show you around.

We have group open sessions in the Autumn Terms for applications for Reception the following year. More details will appear in the banner above.


As with all other schools in South Gloucestershire, our admissions are handled by  the Local Authority. Full details on the application process and their online form can be found on their website on the following link:
