We follow Telford and Wrekin Council's admission arrangements for all cohorts (reception to Year 6).  Our admission number for 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 is 70. 

For in-year transfers, upon receipt of an application form from the Admission's Department, we complete and return this to them within 5 school days (term time only) wherever possible.  They then notify parents of the outcome of their application (within 15 school days of the application being received from the parent wherever possible).  If you would like your child to join our school, please follow the links below to the Telford and Wrekin Council website.

For reception places from next September, please refer to the guidance on the Telford and Wrekin website (link below).

In all year groups, places are offered to applicants in order of the published over subscription criteria detailed in the primary school booklet (see Telford and Wrekin Council's website, link below).
