If you are interested in finding out about a place for your child please get in touch. We will not be offering open days during summer 2021, but can arrange individual visits to the school and we hope to have an open day for entry to EYFS in Autumn 2021.
Our admission policies can be found below, the date refers to the year in which a school place is applied for:
The policy for Reception class admission in September 2022 can be found below.
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 Devon County Council, regardless of their home address. The admissions team can be found here.
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 a form with Devon admissions, not direct to the school.
Parents of children leaving us at the end of Year 6 choose a range of secondary schools, including Grammar Schools and schools in Plympton, Ivybridge and further afield. We are listed as a feeder Primary school for Ivybridge Community College and Plympton Academy, but all our children in the last few years have received their first choice place at a range of local schools.
