All schools publish the guidelines that they follow when offering places to children. Our Admissions Policy below explains how decisions about admissions will be made fairly.
The application process depends on how old your child will be on the birthday that falls within the school year. The school year, or academic year, runs from 1st September to 31st August.
If your child will become 3 or 4 during the school year, you can apply for them to join our Nursery.
Applications to Nursery are made directly to the school and you can apply by contacting us.
Your child is entitled to a full time school place from the September following their fourth birthday and you can apply for them to join the academy in Reception. If your child becomes any age between 6 and 11 during the school year, you can apply for them to come into their year group within Westgate Hill Primary Academy.
Places in Reception classes up to (and including) Year 6 can be applied for online at https://www.newcastle.gov.uk/services/schools-learning-and-childcare/apply-school-place. Alternatively, please contact the school directly and we will be able to help you further.
We look forward to hearing from you and meeting you and your child.
Laidlaw Schools Trust is currently consulting to reduce the PAN (planned admission number) at Westgate Hill Primary Academy from September 2023. Please see further information on the Trust website.
