Most of our pupils join us at Year 3 and transfer to various secondary schools when 11+. Eastfield Infants and Nursery is our main feeder school and is situated next door. All local infant schools provide full details of the transfer process and distribute admission forms. The Local Authority aim to let all parents know if their application has been successful early in April.

We can currently offer up to 90 places a year. In order of priority, places are offered to:

  1. Children who are looked after, have a statement of special educational need which names the school, or for whom this is the only school that can meet their long-term medical needs.
  2. Children who live in the catchment area, attend the partner infant school and who have a sibling at the school (or the partner infant school) at the time of admission.
  3. Children who live in the catchment area who have a sibling at the school (or the partner infant school) at the time of admission.
  4. Children who live in the catchment area and who attend the partner infant school.
  5. Children living in the catchment area.
  6. Children who live outside the catchment area, but attend the partner infant school and have a sibling at the school (or the partner infant school) at the time of admission.
  7. Children who live outside the catchment area, but have a sibling at the school (or the partner infant school) at the time of admission.
  8. Children who live outside the catchment area, but who attend the partner infant school.
  9. Children who live outside the catchment area and have been unable to gain a place at their catchment area school because of oversubscription.
  10. Children who live outside the catchment area, but nearest the school as measured by a straight line.

For admissions to other years or after the September entry date, you need to contact the Local Authority Admissions Officer whose details can be obtained from the school office.

Most of our pupils take up places at the St Ivo Secondary School after completing Year 6
