Entry to school

Starting school in a reception class, can be an anxious time for both parents and children. We hope that the following information will help you to understand the process for choosing a school and applying for a place in school.

Admissions to schools in Darlington go through the admissions team at the Town Hall. Information about applying for a place at St. Mary’s Cockerton can be found on Darlington Borough Council Website: Darlington BC – Admissions

Further information can be found in our Admission Policy (below).

Mid-Year School Admissions

To apply for a place in any year group during the course of an academic year, other than at the normal point of entry, then you MUST contact the Schools Admissions Team for information on school places. Parents will be sent and required to complete an in-year application form, as a formal request for a school place will only be considered.
