Children are normally admitted to school at the beginning of the Autumn Term following their fourth birthday.
Parents who wish to apply for a place in school are advised to register their child with the school secretary by their second birthday. From the spring of 1998, all parents whether they reside in or out of the school's catchment area, must complete a school preference form. This should be returned to the school of their choice by 1st December. School Preference forms are circulated to prospective families, but are also available from school and/or from Northumberland County Council.
