Each address in Doncaster has a catchment area school and most parents apply for their children to attend their local school.
IMPORTANT – Applications received during term time by Friday at 5pm, are normally sent a decision within 2 school weeks

Children normally transfer to Hungerhill School at the end of the National Curriculum Yr 6, although this is subject to Hungerhill’s admissions policy.
We are very proud of our close liaison with Hungerhill and the other feeder schools in the pyramid. Close co-operation means that transfer to secondary school is smooth.
