Bramford and Somersham

Primary School Federation


Both Bramford and Somersham are Local Authority maintained schools, so the admissions to either are administrated by the Local Authority.

Each school has a Published Admissions Number or PAN for short. The PAN for Bramford is currently 30 children per year group and at Somersham the PAN is 15.


If either school has places available in a year group, then we can accept in-year admissions of pupils from other schools. However, we always encourage this to happen at the end of a term and that parents have discussed this with their child's current Headteacher before finally deciding to apply.


For parents of children who would like their child to start school in Reception next year, you have to apply before 15th January 2024. Any applications after this date are considered as 'late' applications, which are the lowest priority in the selection criteria.


School Tours for prospective parents of Early Years children (September 2024) are being held at both schools. If you would like to attend one of these sessions, please go to the Admissions Page for either Bramford or Somersham for more information.


To apply for places for any year group, you will find all the information you need by clicking this link.

Telephone: 0345 600 0981, 9am-5pm.
