Admissions Guidance

Overview –

If your child already attends Osprey Quay or Maritime House there is no requirement for you to apply for your child to move to Year 3 or 7 as this will be automatic.

If, however, you have a child who will be starting school in Reception Class at IPACA or attending another school in Year 6 you will need to apply for them to join IPACA in September. Dorset County Council administer this process and you need to go to the website to obtain the relevant form –

Alternatively you can contact school admissions on 01305 221060.

Even if your child is in the Foundation Stage Unit at Osprey Quay, you will still need to go through the admissions procedure at County to enrol for Reception Class.

IPACA does not give priority to applications from pupils enrolled at any particular school.
