Admission Arrangements

Although the school is voluntary aided and has its own admissions committee, admissions to the school are handled by the local authority on the school's behalf.  The school follows Norfolk Local Authority Fair Access Protocol.
 
Therefore should your child want a place in the school in any year, please see the Norfolk's School Admissions page for further information.
