Before starting to complete your child’s application it is important that you read the admissions criteria of the schools you wish to nominate as a preference. This year you will be able to make an application online from the 30th of January 2024. You will be given an appointment with Mr McLean and your child’s class teacher for support with the form.

Please refer to the step-by-step powerpoint for help completing the form.


Children will receive their school outcome on Saturday the 18th of May 2024. This will be via email.
