Welcome to

Kenton Bar

Primary School


We are delighted that you are considering our school for your child.

If you would like to know more, or would like to book a tour, please contact the school office. 


Please see full details of our admission arrangements below. 

A copy of the Smart admissions policy can be found by clicking the link. 

In year transfers


An in year admission is when a parent wishes to apply for a place at a school outside of the usual admission date at the start of the academic year.  This can be because the child is moving to a different address or is new to the country or can be for other reasons.  These moves usually take place during the academic year, which is why they are referred to as “in year” admissions.

Newcastle City Council co-ordinates the application process.  For further information and the online application form, please follow the link below:

Here at Kenton Bar Primary School, we have a 26 place school nursery.

If you child has turned 3 before September, you can apply for a place to start at the beginning of the Autumn term (September). 


If space allows, we take children throughout the year, the term after their third birthday.
