Please find below information about how to apply for places at Harthill Primary School, Rotherham. 

For those parents whose children start school in September 2024, please ring school to make an appointment and we will be more than happy to show you and your family around and answer any questions which you may have. 


H​arthill Primary School is a school that follows the policies of Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council (RMBC) Children and Young People’s Services. All admissions to school from Foundation 2  are governed by the admissions policy of the local authority.  It is the responsibility of parents/carers to apply for a school place and if your application is late, you are less likely to be granted a place at one of your preferred schools. Closing date for application for 2024/25 is 15th January 2024. 

You can  apply via the RMBC website.

Please note that Harthill Primary School, as with all other controlled schools, does not have the authority to grant a place at the school directly.

Admission Limits 2024/25
The admission number for each class is 30 and all children will be admitted during the Autumn Term prior to their 5th birthday (compulsory school age). Where parents wish to defer entry or request that the child attends part‐time, the request will be considered where it appears to be in the best interest of the child.


If your child is already in school and you wish for them to transfer to us within a year or a keystage, you will still need to apply through RMBC. Feel free to give us a ring for more information!
