Please see the Northumberland County Council Admissions Policy for 2013-2014. The following link will take you directly to the Northumberland Admissions page for more information and forms:


If your child is starting school or transferring to a different phase of education in September 2014, you need to apply for for a place. Click here for details on how to apply.


Children are normally admitted to school at the beginning of the Autumn Term following their fourth birthday. Parents who wish to apply for a place in school are advised to register their child with the school secretary by their second birthday.  From the spring of 1998 all parents whether they reside in or out of the school’s catchment area must complete a school preference form.  These can be located and completed on line on the Northumberland County Council’s web site.  If a school place is provided, an induction programme of school visits will be arranged for your child during the summer term


It is recommended that parents who wish to apply for a nursery place for their child should visit the Headteacher and complete an application form as soon as possible.  Should there be a shortage of places, priority will be given to those parents living within the catchment area of the school. A nursery session lasts for 3 hours per day.  It would be helpful to us if children accepted for the five available sessions per week could attend these on a regular basis.

School Choir

Wylam First School choir is open to all children in Years 2, 3 and 4. We meet every Friday lunchtime (12.30 - 1:00) in the nursery classroom. We sing a wide variety of songs and the emphasis is always on having fun. We have performed at a wide variety of venues throughout the North East. Read more about it here.
