In September 2020 West End converted from a two form entry first school to a one form entry primary school catering for pupils from 3 to 11 years of age. Subsequently we have a mixed economy of one and two form entry year groups.

For the 2023-24 academic year our pupil admission numbers for each year group are as follows:

  • Nursery -26 AM, 26 PM 
  • Reception - 30
  • Year 1 - 30
  • Year 2 - 30
  • Year 3 - 60
  • Year 4 - 30
  • Year 5 - 30
  • Year 6 - 60


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:

We operate a joint nursery admissions policy with West End Pre-school. West End Primary School Nursery and West End Pre-school operate in partnership out of the same purpose built nursery building. This partnership  offers 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.
