In-Year Admissions: We invite all parents interested in applying for a place at Grange first to come and visit our school. Parents who wish to make an in-year application for a Newcastle school must apply using Newcastle City Council’s ‘In Year application form’. For In Year Transfer information go to www.newcastle.gov.uk/admissions or ask for a form from the school office. We consider each application using our admissions policy and current waiting lists. A place is offered, if there is a vacancy, to the applicant at the top of the waiting list. If we cannot offer you a place you will be notified by letter.
Further information about applying for a school place, admission criteria or transferring schools during an academic year can be found on the Local Authority web-page ‘School Admissions’. Information can be found on the Local Authority website about previous cohorts and admission information
There is a right for people to object about the policy to the Schools Adjudicator (OSA). See the Schools Adjudicator website for more information on how to do this.
The Newcastle City Council website at www.newcastle.gov.uk contains all further information.
