Applying for a place at our school

If your child was born between 1st September 2009 and 31st August 2010, you need to apply to Derbyshire County Council for a school place. Your application needs to be in by January 15th 2014, ready for them to start school in September 2014. Even if you have approached us about a place, or feel that you have "put your child's name down", you still need to complete the County Council form. 

If you are considering Shirland Primary School for your child, we would be delighted to show you around the school and see the fantastic facilities we have to offer. Please telephone the school office on 01773 832426 to arrange a visit.

To apply online, please go to which is the Derbyshire County Council's website for applications and contains lots of information about the process. If you have any questions about the application process, please contact us and we will be happy to help.
