Admissions for school-aged children

Norfolk County Council is responsible for arranging all admissions into Norfolk schools. If you are moving into the area, or would like your child to attend our school, please contact the School Admissions team at County Hall on 01603 222593. Admissions mid- year are normally organised to start at the each term, unless there are reasons why a child needs to start school straight away (for example if they can no longer travel to their previous school).

Parents of children who are due to start school for the first time will receive information through the post about how to apply for a place at our school. These letters are normally sent out from Norfolk County Council, in the October, the year before the child is due to start school. Parents can apply for a place online or through the form sent to your home address. Please contact the School Admissions team on the number above if you require any further information.

Prospective parents are always welcome to visit the school, please contact the office to arrange a mutually convenient time.

School places are allocated in accordance with our admissions policy by Norfolk County Council. Our admissions number per year is currently 40 children.
