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 through Cornwall Council.  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 come and talk with us if you are interested in a place in a different year group for any reason.  

 

For questions about your child joining the school or the admissions process in general, please do not hesitate to contact the school direct or contact Plymouth CAST by email to Rose Colpus-Fricker (Chief Operating Officer) admin@plymouthcast.org.uk

 

If you are interested in your child joining our school in-year (once the academic year has started), you can apply for a place through Cornwall Council. Please apply via this link Cornwall Council Change of Schools Application Online Form

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

 

Admission Arrangements 

Plymouth CAST 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.
