An application can be made for a place for a child at any time outside the admission round and the child will be admitted where there are available places.  An application should be made to Derbyshire Local Authority by completing the LA Common Application Form (Click Here)  and following the instructions on the LA website. If applying for a place on faith grounds you will also need to complete a Supplementary Information Form (see below) and return this to Mrs D Murphy.

Where there are places available but more applications than places, the published oversubscription criteria, as set out in the admission arrangements for 2021/2022 will be applied:

Parents are advised to read the admission arrangements carefully before making their application.

If there are no places available, the child will be added to the waiting list.  Please see the admission arrangements for more details.
