Admissions to school


The school is its own admissions authority but Nottinghamshire Local Authority coordinate our admissions.  This means that the school sets its own admission policy but the Local Authority manage the process.  Please see below for the latest policy and information regarding appeals.

Apply for a place for your child (if your child was born between 1st September 2014 & 31st August 2015)


You have between the 5th November 2018 to 15th January 2019 to apply for a school place and to support you with this decision we are hosting a special open event so you can come into our amazing school and learn more about what we have to offer. Details can be found here (add a link to the attached Word doc)

In addition to this, there are various other dates where you can come into school and meet our headteacher, Mr Pattison, and have a tour of the school. This is a great opportunity to see our wonderful facilities and meet the fabulous children and staff. During a tour of the school, you will be able to hear about the vision and ethos of the school whilst raising any questions you might have. It is also a great opportunity for your child/children to have a look for themselves.

If you wish to take up this opportunity please contact our office team on 0115 989 2284 to arrange a convenient date and time.

We look forward to meeting you.


Admission Appeals and Coronavirus (Covid-19) update 30/04/2020

Unfortunately the coronavirus outbreak has impacted on the ability of schools and panels to carry out admission appeals in the usual way and therefore there may be some unavoidable delays to the commencement to appeals being held across the country. However, as parents/families must continue to have the right to appeal to any school which has refused their child a place, the Government announced regulatory changes on the 24th April 2020 to the Admissions Appeals Code which will enable hearings to take place, although it is unlikely these will be in person due to social distancing requirements.


Your appeal, once submitted will be forwarded to the Independent Clerk, who is currently planning again for the commencement of the appeal hearings. He will be in touch with you as soon as possible once a date has been agreed for the hearing to take place. We do fully recognise the frustration this may cause but these are unprecedented times and trust you fully understand this. Each appeal should continue to be sent to and you will receive acknowledgment that the appeal has been received, update on the situation and contact details for the appeals clerk who will manage your appeal and keep you informed of progress, date and outcomes.


Assuring you of our best attention at all times.
