Primary Admissions
For the main school the standard admissions number for rising 5's is 90.

Children are admitted to full-time statutory education at the beginning of the school year in which they become five years of age. A school year runs from 1st September one year to 31st August the next year.

Admission arrangements for Derby City schools are now dealt with centrally by Derby City's Children and Young People's Department.  You can apply for a school place by telephoning (01332) 642729 or (01332) 642730.  The Local Authority will allocate places according to their criteria.

Places in both the Nursery and Reception are in demand and so parents need to register their interest in a school place as early as possible.

The Headteacher is most happy to give prospective parents a guided tour of the school – please telephone to make an appointment.
