Prudhoe West is a non-selective school for the local community. As such, the admissions policy reflects the locally co-ordinated admissions scheme. After admitting students with a statement of SEN, followed by ‘Looked After’ children, the admissions policy for the Academy prioritises brothers and sisters of children at the school and those living closest to the Academy. Our admissions policy is available below.

Our admissions number (PAN) is 60; this means this year we will admit up to 60 pupils into our Reception classes. 

If you are interested in securing a place at Prudhoe West for your child, please contact us to make an individual appointment to visit. This will give you the opportunity to see our school in action, meet our staff and children, and ask any questions you might have. You could also watch our school video which will give you a feel for what we’re all about.
