Admission Arrangements 

The admissions policy is to admit four-year-old children born between 1st September and 31st August in the Autumn term.

Each Devon school serves a particular area, but parents may apply for a place for their child in any school. The School accepts the principle of parental choice and considers applications for children living outside the School’s designated area. Places are allocated with priority given to children living in the designated area and to children outside of our catchment with siblings in School.  Parental preference is only refused if it would prejudice the efficient use of resources or the Planned Admission Number set by the Area Education Authority.

Further details can be found on the School Admissions page on Devon's website
