Admissions

If you are considering applying to Red Hill Field, we would be delighted to meet you and show you around the school. Please take a look at our 'Why Choose Red Hill Field' page to find out about our next Open Event and contact the office on 0116 2841500 to make an appointment.

The Local Authority has a duty to provide school places to all pupils resident in its area: Leicestershire achieves this by giving high priority to catchment area children and by allowing parental preference wherever possible. Red Hill Field Primary School admissions policy and procedure supports Leicestershire’s position.

You can also see a map of our catchment area here.

Parents must apply to their home Local Authority for a school place. If you are a Leicestershire resident and would like to find out more information, or make an application, please visit their website.
