ADMISSIONS AND OPEN EVENTS

Ponteland Community Middle School has places available for new Year 5 children in September 2018. If you would like to make an application for your child, please use the appropriate application form (please see information and links below). Details of our forthcoming Open Events can be found under the Open Events section of this website. However, every day is an Open Day and Parents are very welcome to come and have a tour of school anytime if the dates specified are not suitable. Please call 01661 824853 to arrange.

The most important message is to apply on time. The closing date for all Local Authorities is midnight 31 October 2017. Any paper forms received after that date will be considered late and may not be processed. National offers day is 1 March 2018.
