Admission Arrangements

Our school admissions for Reception and transfers from other schools are co-ordinated by the Local Authority, Northumberland County Council.

The Online Portal for Admissions to First and Primary Schools is now closed for children starting school in September 2023 (DoB: 01.09.2018 - 31.08.2019). You must complete an application for a place in a Reception class even if your child attends the school nursery or pre-school setting.

Further information can be found on the School Admissions page by following the link Admissions for Reception or by emailing the admissions team:

The admissions team co-ordinates the transfer process on behalf of schools in Northumberland, including academies, voluntary aided and trust.

To transfer schools you must complete an ‘In Year’ Application Form. If you are unable to complete this form a paper copy is available by contacting the school admissions team:
