If  you  are interested in your child joining us, either in our main intake into or at any other time, please do come along and visit us.   If you would like to make an appointment to visit, please contact us here at the school.

If we can make a place available to you then we will. If not, you would have the right to appeal to a panel that is independent of the school and we would place your child’s name on a waiting list for vacancies.                             

We have our own admissions policy because we are a Foundation school and have responsibility for admissions decisions, although Devon Admissions Process this for us. Our policy is reviewed every year - we take part in the Council’s annual consultation in December and January and welcome the views of our local community.

If we have a vacancy then all children are welcome to join us. If we are oversubscribed, we still welcome all children but give priority to particular groups: children who are looked after by the local authority, children with an exceptional need to come to our school, children who live in our catchment and children with siblings already here. We only use these oversubscription criteria when we are oversubscribed. For full details of our admission arrangements, please look at our admissions policies.

We take part in the co-ordinated admissions schemes of Devon County Council which help parents to make applications for admission to school. Parents can apply through Devon for in-year admissions and through the local authority where the child lives for the normal round of admissions.
