School Admissions for children in Reception to Year 6

Admissions for children in Reception to Year Six are governed and managed by the county council. Please contact us on 01946 592940 then apply through the admissions link which can be found below.

 You may either apply on-line or download an application form which needs to be returned to Cumbria County Council.

We always endeavour to provide places bit if there are cases of over subscription we follow Cumbria County Council's admission policy.

Even if your child is currently in our nursery you will have to apply through the Council for their Reception place. This is the same process in all schools.


Nursery Admissions from term after the child turns 3

Nursery admissions are managed by school. Please do contact us on 01946 592940 for a admission form or to arrange a visit to the school.


We have three intakes for Nursery throughout the year; September, January and April. Please note children are eligible to join our school nursery the term after they turn 3 years old.


We have places available for those with 15 hours and 30 hours entitlement. Please visit the Government website to check if you qualify for 30 hours free childcare. Alternatively, we offer the opportunity for parents to extend their child's hours at a cost, see Mrs Hanley in the school office for more information.
