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 late September, October and November 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. 



Re:  School Admissions Appeals - Reception and Junior Transfers for September 2023-2024


As you will be aware National Offer Day for Reception and Junior Transfers is on Monday 17 April 2023; we will no doubt have a number of parents wishing to appeal for school places and so in readiness I can confirm the following timetable:


National Offer Day for Reception/Junior Places

Monday 17 April 2023

Closing date for all Reception and Junior school appeals which DCC are processing

Monday 22 May 2023

Reception/Junior School hearing dates for appeals which DCC are processing

To be heard w/c Monday 19 June 2023 through to w/c 17 July 2023



For Community and Voluntary Controlled Schools we will issue appeal forms and advise parents of the deadlines, for those Academies who buy into our Appeals Sold Service please let parents know of the closing date when handing out your appeal forms and notes of guidance.


Appeals received after the closing date can still be processed and heard, however they may not be a part of the block hearings and may be scheduled at a later date.
