We take pride in Fairway Primary School being a popular choice of school in our local community.  If you’re interested in learning more about your child attending Fairway Primary School please contact us to arrange a  tour of the school. 


Fairway employs the services of the Local Authority to administer the admissions policy and respond to the Independent Appeals Panel in order to ensure that all parents/ carers receive the same service and the system remains fair and transparent to all.  School’s published admission number (PAN) for entry into Reception is 30.



Parents/ Carers need to apply for a place in school at the following stages in their child's education:

  • Nursery
  • Reception
  • Year 7

It is important that Parents/ Carers adhere to the deadline dates as this could affect their child securing a place in the school of their choice.
