In-Year Admissions

If you would like your child to join Fishponds CE Academy part way through their school journey please complete our Application Form. Once we have received your application form we will be in contact to arrange a time for you and your child(ren) to come and view our school and meet our pupils and staff. You will be welcomed by our lovely office team and will be shown around the school by one of our Senior Leadership Team. 

Although we are a Church of England school we welcome applications from all communities, we embrace and celebrate every child! 


If your child is approaching their fourth birthday you may be thinking about enrolling them at Fishponds CE Academy. 

This year, we will be holding five open events. During our school tours you will be able to have a look around our school and facilities, get to know our Reception staff and have a chat with our headteacher.

During our 'Stay & Play' events you and your child are invited to come and spend some time in class. You will be able to see what the children are learning and gain a deeper insight into how our Early Years provision runs. 

Please RSVP to let us know you will be coming to one of our Open Events.  We look forward to meeting you!

How to Apply

If you would like to apply for a Reception class place for your child to start in September, you will need to apply through Bristol City Council. 

All in-year admissions are managed directly by the school. Please contact us or complete our application form. 


If you're refused a place for your child at your preferred school you have the right to appeal against the decision of the admissions Authority. Appeals must be made through the Bristol City Council appeals process.
