Sawley Infant School

Admissions to Sawley Infant School are processed by the Local Authority as part of the Derbyshire Coordinated Admissions Scheme. The Admissions link below will open the Derbyshire County Council Primary Admissions page where you will find guidance about application dates and access to online application forms for Infant and Junior school places.  

Applications can also be made via post or over the phone.


A place at Sawley Infant School cannot guarantee a place at Sawley Junior School. We are two separate schools - both part of Willows Academy Trust.
