Admissions to Reception Class for those reaching their 5th birthday by 31st August in the next school year

There is a cut-off date for applications in the middle of January each year for entry in the following September– please see the admissions handbook mentioned above for the exact date. We have an admissions limit of 60 children into our Reception Year and the school is normally over-subscribed. There are short tours of the school during October, November and December when you will have the opportunity to talk to the Headteacher and see the classrooms and other facilities. Please call the school office on 01332 514052 from mid-September onwards to book a visit.

 Admissions to other year groups

Applications must be made to Derby City Council – please see the contact details above. We are happy to answer queries as to the current number of pupils we have in each year group but you must contact the Council for the up to date position and to make an application – there may be other applications currently being processed that we are unaware of. If you would like to visit the school please call the office on 01332 514052 and we will make arrangements with you. 

2019-2020 Reception/Junior Appeal Deadlines 

The School Admission Appeals Code 2012 at Section 2.1 states that appeals for applications made in the normal admissions round, which in this case is Reception and Junior applications for September 2019/20, must be heard within 40 school days from the deadline for lodging appeals.  With these dates in mind and just for guidance, Derby City Council has set the following dates for their appeal closing dates and hearings for students starting school in September 2019 or moving to Junior School in September 2019.
