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 Gordan. 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.
