The admission process for Reception children to join us in September 2017 is closed and will open again for 2018 entry in September 2017. If you want to find out more about us we would love you to come and see us, just give us a call or drop us an email. We currently have space in Year 5 only.

Our admission policies can be found below, the date refers to the year in which a child will start school: 

2016-2017 Sparkwell Admissions Policy

2017-2018 Sparkwell Admissions Policy 

2018-2019 Sparkwell Admissions Policy                                                       

We admit children who live in both Devon and Plymouth local authorities as we are on the edge of the local authority boundaries, families apply through their home local authority according to their address and our admissions are processed by Plymouth Admissions. 

If you wish to apply for a place at Sparkwell as an in-year admission (that is, not the start of Reception year) you need to complete the form below and return to Plymouth admissions as specified on the form, not to the school. Please note that as we are a school in Devon, you do not need to complete Section 4 ('Fair Access'). You can visit Plymouth Admissions' website here and Devon Admissions here

If you wish to appeal against an admission decision we use Plymouth City Council to act on our behalf. Visit the website page here for more information and the timescales. There is an online appeals form here
