Welcome video

Jill, our School Admissions and Inclusion Manager, talks about how this page can help you with school admissions, places, and the appeals process. 

Please note, as a parent or carer, it’s your responsibility to make an application for a school place. 
Some Academies in Northumberland co-ordinate their own admissions.


If you are unsure, please contact the school directly. 

School admissions in Northumberland are managed by the council's School Admissions Team. They deal with applications for places in all school year groups, with the exception of Nursery, Sixth Forms, and Colleges.
