Applications to the Nursery should be made through the school. Forms are available in the school office and should be returned to the school.
Applications to the Reception class are made through the Local Authority. Application forms are available at your child’s current Nursery or from the school office. Forms should be returned to the School’s Admissions Department at Newcastle Civic Centre.
Applications for places in Years 1-6 are classed as 'in year transfers' if your child already attends another school. An in year admission is when a parent wishes to apply for a place at a school outside of the usual admission date. This can be because the child is moving to a different address or is new to the country or can be for other reasons. These moves usually take place during the academic year, which is why they are referred to as “in year” admissions. Newcastle City Council co-ordinates the application process.

Please note that transfer forms are available from your child’s current school and should be returned to the School’s Admissions Department at Newcastle Civic Centre. If your child is not already in a school in Newcastle, application forms are available from the Local Authority or our school office.
