Each admission year, the Local Authority produces a ‘Guide to Parents Admission to Schools’ – summary guide. 

The maximum number of admissions agreed with the Local Authority for Barrowcliff School is 60 per year group.

Barrowcliff School provides Nursery provision of 15 hours per week. We offer a flexible option of sessions catering for up to 39 children per session.


Children are admitted to Reception at the start of the Autumn Term of the school year during which they will be five years of age. In the Summer Term before children start Reception there is an induction evening for all new parents.


You need to be aware that if your child attends Nursery this does not guarantee your child a place in Reception.


If we are unable to allocate a place at Barrowcliff School you will be entitled to an appeal in line with current legislation. Appeal arrangements are available on the NYCC website or from the admissions team on request, please contact:
