Horsley Woodhouse Primary School


We currently follow Derbyshire County Council's admissions process. The council co-ordinates the admissions to all Derbyshire Primary, Infant, and Junior Schools.  

Parents/carers must make their application via Derbyshire County Council. 

Children moving into our designated catchment area may be admitted to their relevant age group in our school. If we are oversubscribed, then parents/carers will need to complete an application form and go to appeal whether they are in the catchment area or not. 

Please see:

Derbyshire CC School Admission Arrangements

You can apply through the Derbyshire County Council website. 

For 2025 - 26 admissions we will follow the arrangements as set out by our trust, Embark. The details can be viewed below:
