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.
