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 2019, our admission number for each year group is 30. 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.

There are two types of admissions and both are described below:

1) Applying for a Reception Place for September 2022

From the beginning of November 2021 letters will be sent out to parents of children due to start school in September 2022. If you do not receive a letter please contact the Co-ordinated Admissions Team at Gloucester County Council.  Applications can be made between 4th November 2021 and 15th January 2022.  

The closing date for applying for a Reception place is 15th January 2022. You will need to apply online using the website above. The Local Authority look at the schools you have put as a preference and see if they can offer you a place at any of them. Places will be offered on 19th April 2022.  The closing date for the return of reply forms accepting the Academy place or requesting reconsideration is 26th April 2022.  After 17th May 2022 letters will be sent out advising the outcome of waiting list requests and 24th May 2022 is the closing date for the return of reply forms.  Appeals will be heard during June and July 2022.

2) Applying for a place during the school year

If you move to the area during the school year or your child needs to move school for other reasons you will need to apply for a school place by contacting the Academy or completing an in-year application form and sending it into the Academy.  A form can be found here.
