"Where Learning Blossoms..."


Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. We are a maintained school and operate within the Sunderland Co Co-ordinated Admissions Scheme.  The Local Authority sets the criteria and allocates places based on those criteria.

The City of Sunderland Admissions Team are on hand to provide advice to parents on all aspects of the admission process. You may contact them on 0191 5205553 or email
