How to apply 


Most children join our school at the normal round at the main intake into school from the start of September in Reception. As a parent, you should apply to the Local Authority for a place.


There are different options for parents of children starting school in Reception. This includes part-time education and deferring or delaying admission until later in the Reception year or, for children with birthdays in the summer term, to the following September. Come and talk to us if you are considering this.


Do also contact us if you are interested in a place in a different year group for any reason.  


Applications for residents of Devon are made between 15 November and 15 January for primary schools at


Please note: for our Year 6 pupils moving on to Year 7, applications for residents of Devon must be made by the parent between 1 September and 31 October for secondary schools at  


If your child lives in another LA, including Cornwall, Dorset, Plymouth, Somerset, and Torbay you should apply through that council. The closing dates are the same nationally.

Admission Arrangements 



Devon County Council is the admissions authority for our school. It has responsibility for the admissions policies and decisions on applications for admission. 


We have an admissions policy for each academic year and they will be published on this page when they are proposed for consultation and after they have been determined annually. 


They are written to comply with the School Admissions Code 2021 and School Admissions Appeals Code 2022.  


The Local Authority 


We take part in the co-ordinated admissions schemes of Devon County Council. Devon County Council publishes information about admissions and its own policies to support the admissions application and appeals process. This is at .
