Admissions

We are delighted you are considering our academy for your child’s education.

Primrose Hill C of E Primary Academy is an inclusive academy. Our admission policy does not discriminate on the grounds of ability, special educational needs, disabilities or any other criteria.

Admissions to our school are run by Gloucestershire County Council, but the Academy Trust is the admissions authority. From September 2014, our admission number for entry into reception is 30, but for Year 6 it is 45. When this has been reached then you can still apply for a place but this will have to go to appeal which is run by Gloucestershire County Council. To get the latest advice on admissions visit the Gloucestershire County Council website below or alternatively phone us at school.
