We are a one form entry primary school catering for pupils from 3 to 11 years of age. Due to a small cohort in the current Year 5 we are only able to offer one  class for this year group.

Although our official pupil admission number for Reception this academic year is 30, we currently have a mixed Reception /Year 1 class alongside one Reception and one Year 1 class. This gives us greater capacity in both of those year groups.

For the 2020-21 academic year our pupil admission numbers for each year group are as follows:

  • Nursery -30 AM, 30 PM 
  • Reception - 30
  • Year 1 - 60
  • Year 2 - 60
  • Year 3 - 60
  • Year 4 - 60
  • Year 5 - 30


Admissions for all year groups other than Nursery  are handled by  Northumberland County Council. Parents can apply for school places through the Admissions page of the NCC website at:

From September 2020 we will be operating a joint nursery admissions policy with West End Pre-school. West End First School Nursery and West End Pre-school operate in partnership out of the same purpose built nursery building. From September 2020 this partnership will offer morning and afternoon funded and paid places for 2, 3 and 4 year olds, including 30 hours provision for 3 and 4 year olds. Copies of the School's Nursery Admissions Policy and Application form are attached below, along with information about eligibility criteria and how to apply for 30 hours funded places. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact the school office.
