If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below. 




We offer a.m., p.m. and 30 hour places for Nursery aged children from the term after they turn 3 years old. If you would like to apply for a place please contact the school office who will take your details and ask you to complete an application form.

In-Year Transfers


This information is for parents of children who need to move or start a new school outside of the usual times. This includes:

  • if your child needs to move after the school year has started (the school year starts in September)
  • if your child needs to move when they are part-way through primary or secondary (children usually start a new school in reception, year 3 and year 7)


These are known as in-year admissions.


This may be because:

  • you have moved into South Tyneside
  • you already live in South Tyneside but wish to change your child's school


South Tyneside Council organises in-year admissions for all schools in South Tyneside. If you wish to make an in-year transfer, please complete the form available on South Tyneside Council's website (link below), and then email your completed form to: or, post your completed form to: School Admissions team, Town Hall and Civic Offices, Westoe Road, South Shields, NE33 2RL. We recommend sending by recorded delivery so that you have proof of postage.


Once your application has been received, South Tyneside Council will contact your preferred school and let you know the outcome. Your child must continue to attend their current school whilst your application is dealt with.


If there are no places available, you have the right to appeal.  Full details of how to appeal will be included in your outcome letter from the School Admissions Team. Appeals can take 4-6 weeks to set up.
