Applying for a first infant (Reception) or junior school place (Year 3)

This process is called first admissions and is dealt with directly by the local authority. You will receive a letter directly to your home address in the November of the school year prior to the next academic year when your child will be moving from the infant school.  Find out more about when and how to apply.

 Please note that if your child already attends Chellaston Infant School, this does not automatically give them a place in Year 3 at Chellaston Junior School. You must still apply through the Local Authority for your Year 3 place.

Once you have accepted the place then school will contact you with some transition arrangements.

Chellaston Infant and Junior School currently has a Pupil Admission Number of 90 in our reception and year 3 each year and these are organised over three classes.

Please go to the Derby City Council interactive map to see the catchment area in more detail.
