Derby City Council admissions service is responsible for coordinating all applications from parents for school places in our catchment area.
If you want to apply for an infant, junior or primary school place in Derby, you need to make an application to them.
Applying for a place at our school as a parent you have a legal right to express a preference for a school that you want your child to attend. If your preferred school has a place, then a place should be offered to your child.
If you want to apply for the intake year of an Infant, Junior or Primary school starting in September 2018, you can make your application from 6th November 2017. The National closing date is 15th January 2018. Applications after this date will be classed as late. To make an application you can:
- apply online – it’s quick and easy and lets you track the progress of your application
- apply by phone on 01332 642730 – this takes around 5 minutes and you will need to know the name of the school you are applying to
