How to apply for a place at Norham

We fully understand that getting the right school for your child is one of the most important and stressful decisions you need to make, therefore we try to make the process as easy and stress free as possible. The process is managed by Miss Patterson in the school office. Once you make contact with us she will organise everything, including getting visits timetabled and allocating a key worker for your child in the class they are going to join.

Hopefully everything you need is below, but if you have any questions please just contact us.

During the transition period your child will be designated a key worker in the class to manage friendships and routines, but also give them a port of call for any questions they may have during this stressful time. Never be afraid to ask a question, we have an open door policy and are always happy to help.
