Applying for a Place at St Ebbe’s

We have a few places available in most of our classes. The Local Authority is responsible for co-ordinating admissions to our school.

In September 2012 we increased our Published Admission Number from 45 to 60.

Please contact Jo Williams at the school office if you need any more information or if you would like to arrange for a visit. We would like to invite you to the school so we can show you around.
