Are you looking for a school place?   

We offer small classes with high expectations where children achieve well in a caring environment.

We are happy to show you around our school individually. This will give you the opportunity to meet with our headteacher, Mrs Dyson, and ask any questions you want. Please contact the school to arrange your visit. tel 01279 777344   


"My four children have all gone to Furneux Pelham school. They are four very different individuals with a wide range of personalities and academic abilities. The school has given each of them not just the best childhood memories but has also made them the kind of human being you are happy to know. That is a gift that will carry them through life, and for that I will be forever grateful."


Furneux Pelham School admits children from between 4 and 11 years old and at the time of writing we have 114 children on the school roll. As a Church of England Voluntary Controlled School, we follow the county admissions policy and in the case of over  subscription, criteria are applied by the Local Authority to allocate places. We can admit twenty pupils in each year group. Children who are going to be five by August 31st of that academic year attend full time from September.


Parents of pre school children who are due to start school in September should complete the application form found on line at


The local authority processes admissions and successful applicants for places are informed by them. Parents are then invited to a Coming to School meeting and children are invited to visit for a morning in the summer term.


Applying for places in other year groups

The above link will also take you to the information that is required for making an 'In Year' application i.e. an application to any other year group apart from Reception. You must apply online to the Local Authority rather than the school via the following link, although we always welcome visits and would be more than happy to give you a tour of our school and answer any questions you may have before making your application.
