In order to apply for a place in school, you need to complete an admission form.


This will either be a form from Sheffield Primary Admissions or a Common Transfer Form from your child's current school.


Once these forms are completed, they need to be sent to Sheffield Primary Admissions who will then process the application and inform you of the results.


When we have received an allocation from Primary Admissions, we will contact you to arrange a meeting with the Headteacher where you can visit the school and be given a start date.

Admission Appeal Timelines

Appeals for entry to Reception will also be administrated by the Local Authority on behalf of the Academy and in line with the statutory Appeal Code of Practice. Appeals will be heard at the Sheffield Town Hall. The closing date for the submission of appeals is May 2017. Parents will be advised of the exact closing date and appeal procedure when they receive notification of the outcome of their application on 18 April. Appeal Application Forms can be obtained from the Local Authority or downloaded here where you can also find guidance about the process.

You will be notified of the date and time of your appeal in writing by the City Council. Schedules will be determined after the closing date for receiving appeals. Reception (FS1 to FS2) and Year 2 to 3 appeals for those submitted on time are normally scheduled after the Spring Bank holiday at the end of May and concluded before the end of the summer term. Please note that the appeal panel is independent of the Academy and the Local Authority and its decision is legally binding on both the Academy and on parents.

For any further advice on the appeals process please contact the Admissions Team on 0114 273 5766 or email
