As a foundation trust primary school the Governing Body of Hotspur Primary School is the Admissions Authority and is responsible for determining the school's Admissions Policy. The Governing Body has opted to follow the admissions guidance set out by Newcastle City Council. 

Children are admitted to school in the September of the academic year in which they turn 5. Requests for admissions to Hotspur Primary School's Reception classes each year are dealt with by the Schools Admissions Department at the Civic Centre in accordance with our Admissions Policy. The policy includes details of how pupils that apply are selected and the 'over-subscription criteria'.

The Newcastle City Council application process opens on 1st September. The National Offer Day for Reception places is 16th April. If you applied online you can log into your application on this day to view and accept your offer. Letters will be sent by second class post to parents and carers who applied by paper. Please remember to accept your offer by the deadline of 2nd May, if you do not respond the offer may be withdrawn. Any places that have become available since offer day will be reallocated on 8th May.
