School Admissions

Our school is an academy within Tudhoe Learning Trust. The Trust is the Admissions Authority for all schools within the Trust and has determined to operate admissions on the same basis as that used by Durham Local Authority.

Victoria Lane Academy operates within an equal preference scheme and welcomes all children.

Nursery Admissions

Our Nursery admission limit is 26 pupils per session. Victoria Lane Academy offers 15 hours of free childcare during term time for all 3 and 4 year old children. This will consist of 5 morning sessions.  We also offer the 30 hour option to eligible families and currently have several places still available. Please contact the school office for further information.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

Normal admissions procedures apply, however where a Special Educational Need or Disability is identified the school would work with parents/cares and other agencies involved to ensure that appropriate provision could be provided.  If you have any questions about our SEND Information Report please contact the school and we will try our best to help you.
