We are delighted that you have an interest in our school. Our admissions are managed by Dorset County Council but you are most welcome to visit the school for a look around by prior arrangement. Please contact the office and we will be delighted to make an appointment for you. 


For children staring school for the first time in September, we recommend that you apply for a place by the cut off date and put Motcombe Primary School down as you first choice in order to maximize your child's chances of getting a place at our school, even if you live outside our catchment area.

If you are interested in moving your child to our school from another school then you are most welcome to inquire with us about any available places. You will also need to apply for a place through Dorset County Council. We would be delighted to show you and your child around the school, please contact the office to make an appointment. We are also happy to arrange a taster day for your child if required. 

Our Admissions Policy can be found on the Key Information page of our school website, a link to this has been provided below.
