We are able to offer 90 reception places each year. Please see our prospectus for more details of life at Ark Blacklands Primary Academy.

Applications for September 2021 entry are now open.

Due to current governemt guidance, we are unable to run our open days in the usual way. Instead, we are planning to host 'Virtual Visits' via Zoom or similar online video conference tool.

Each session will begin with a talk from the Principal then followed by a virtual tour of our school. We also hope to be able to have an oportunity to answer questions.  

If you would like to join one of these 'virtual visits'  to Ark Blacklands to determine if we are the right school for your child, then please contact us via info@blacklandsprimary.org or call our admissions officer, Rachel Hinds on 01424 429279 to secure an email invitation. The dates of meetings for admission in 2021 are listed below.


These will now have to be virtual meetings and will be held on Mondays in November from 4.00pm

The school office will contact you if you booked one of these visits to provide a link to our virtual tour. If you wish to be sent the link, please email us on info@arkblacklandsprimary.org 

These will be held on Mondays in November from 4.30 - 5.30pm
