The Federation of Bishop Sutton and Stanton Drew Primary Schools are part of the Lighthouse Schools Partnership - the process for applying for a place for your child at our schools is described below.

Applying for a place in Reception prior to your child being of school age

We are part of the co-ordinated admissions scheme operated by Local Authorities. Parents need to apply through their own local authority using the form on the local authority website.

Applying for a place In-Year

Below is the link for the Application form for a change of Infant/Junior/Primary School. As our schools are both academies we are our own admissions authority and the form therefore needs to be completed and sent directly to the school for which you are applying for a place. Please note that section 4 must be completed by your child’s present school. Click here for the 'in-year' admissions form.

Please do contact us to arrange a visit to one of our schools or to ask for further information (Bishop Sutton 01275 332817 and Stanton Drew 01275 332820).
