In Year Admissions

Since 1 November 2021, the Area Pupil Access team has been responsible for co-ordinating all in year admissions, irrespective of the year group, and schools do not maintain waiting lists for places.

Parents should contact LCC Pupil Access directly on on 01772 532257 if you wish to express an interest in your child joining our school as we do not manage this process.
