Admission Information

Southville Primary School is a three form entry school which means that there are 3 classes of students per year group (90 pupils).

Our nursery holds 50 pupils for a morning session.


Due to being a community school, the local authority decides who we admit in Reception to Year 6 and thus applications should be made through them - information below. Nursery applications are made directly to us.
