Admissions During the School Year
Throughout the academic year, we are approached to enrol students in all year groups. We are happy to discuss this with prospective parents. If you would like to consider joining us, please contact Mrs Gordon. FSD follows the Durham County admissions process. Once you have made your decision, please follow this link here.
Please note that if you wish to proceed with an in-year application, transfer forms are not available from the school. You must contact Durham County Council – see the following pages from their website for advice.
Transferring from Year 6
Mrs Mersh-Roberts coordinates our transition programme. We work with local primary schools and parents throughout Years 5 and 6 to ensure that the transition process is as smooth as possible. We provide opportunities for parents and children to visit us prior to them making an application via Durham County Council in the autumn of Year 6.
2021 Transition – COVID-19: Parental Information – Virtual Programme
Due to COVID -19 we are working on a virtual programme for prospective students, parents and carers. We are currently not planning to hold an open evening and will not be able to accommodate any visits to the site within the first half term, September- October 2020 .
This is subject to change and we will review this in line with national developments.
We will be bringing you a range of videos, including interviews with students and staff that can help you when making your choice. A virtual tour of the school will also be made available very soon. The school prospectus will be distributed to local primary schools in September.
Below are quick and handy links to documents and information about FSD which will be useful to prospective parents when considering schools for their child.
