How to apply


Sherford Vale School will be at the heart of the newly built community of Sherford to the east of Plymouth. This will be a free school and will have its first normal round of admission for the September 2018 intake.

The published admission number for reception is 30 and there are 15 places available in all other year groups from September. Additional places will be made available at the school as the new community at Sherford grows.

Parents of children living in Devon (not Plymouth or Torbay) should apply to Devon County Council, likewise if the children live in Plymouth they should apply to Plymouth City Council.

 Applications can be made now, with allocations continuing to be made throughout the summer holidays .  However, we would strongly encourage you to apply as soon as possible.  This will help us to ensure we have enough great teachers!
