The Althorp Partnership of Primary Schools welcomes visits from prospective parents/carers. Appointments can be made by contacting the schools direct.

Children are admitted into Class 1 in the September after they are four.  We try to settle the children into school as quickly as possible and they are usually full time by mid September. 

The admission number is ten for Brington Primary School. Due to having mixed age classes, the numbers can be exceeded. It is always worth checking with the schools regarding availability prior to submitting an application. 

Older children can join the school at any time providing there are spaces in the appropriate class, please contact the school office or County Admissions.
