How to apply

Most children join our school at the normal round, the main intake into school from the start of September in Reception.  As a parent, you can apply for a place with the Local Authority.

There are different options for parents of children starting school in Reception. This includes part-time education and deferring or delaying admission until later in the Reception year or, for children with birthdays in the summer term, to the following September. Come and talk to us if you are considering this. Do also contact us if you are interested in a place in a different year group for any reason.

Applications for residents of Plymouth are made between 15 November and 15 January for primary schools at

For questions about your child joining the school or just about the admissions process in general, please don’t hesitate to contact the school direct or contact Plymouth School Admissions Service on 01752 307469 or by email to

There is a right of appeal and to a place on a waiting list for places where an application is refused.

Admission Arrangements

St Christopher’s Multi Academy Trust is the admissions authority for our school. It has responsibility for the admissions policies and decisions on applications for admission. We have an admissions policy for each academic year and they will be published on this page when they are proposed for consultation and after they have been determined annually. They are written to comply with the School Admissions Code 2021 and School Admissions Appeals Code 2022.

The Local Authority
