Admissions & Appeals


Admission arrangements for our school are handled through the Local Authority.

To contact school admissions, please either:
Phone: 0300 126 7000
Write: WNC Admissions Team, One Angel Square, Angel Street, Northampton NN1 1ED


Admissions to Reception

Children are able to start at St Luke’s C.E. Primary School in the September following their 4th birthday. Applications for reception can be made in the Autumn term. The deadline is 15th January. Applications must be made through the local authority.

If you wish to apply on faith grounds, please complete our Supplementary Information Form (SIFA ) in addition to the local authority application form and return to the school by 15th January.


Admissions to any year group during the school year (in-year application)

St Luke’s is part of the West Northamptonshire Council in-year scheme, which means applications must be made via the local authority rather than directly to our school. You can do this online move in year application form

We encourage parents to bring their children along to view our school, meet our staff and inspect our facilities. We feel that, whenever possible, it is best to visit us during term-time when we are a school 'in action'.

If you would like your child to be added to our waiting list or would like to make an appointment to visit our wonderful school these can be made by contacting us on 01604 592008, alternatively email

For full information please read our Admissions Policy and Procedures.


If you have applied and been refused a place at our school (in any year group), you are entitled to appeal against that decision.

Appeals for PDET academies are administered by The Diocese of Peterborough Education team. For more information on the process please see:

If you wish to appeal please contact the Appeals Administrator by emailing and ask for an appeals pack.

The pack includes some explanatory notes about the process of Admission Appeals and a Notice of Appeal form that, should you decide to proceed with an appeal, will need to be completed and returned by email if possible, but if not, to the Diocesan Office instead.
