If you wish for your child to enrol at Long Mountain Church of England Primary School, please contact the School Office to make an appointment with the Headteacher, Mr. Jon-Anders Rowlands, to meet with you and show you around the school. 

If your child has been offered a place at school, we will send you details of our parents' meetings and induction days prior to your child starting. Parents will be informed if their child has a place on April 16th 2024.
The school's current admissions policy is operated by the Shropshire Local Authority.

Full details of the policy, together with information about the arrangements for admission, are set out in the “Parents’  Guide to Education in Shropshire on the Shropshire Council  website.

In-year Admissions 

When thinking of moving your child midterm or part way through the primary school stage, we would advise parents to discuss this with their child’s current headteacher.

Careful consideration should be given to whether such a move will be of benefit to your child and their educational progress.

Parents who wish their child to attend Long Mountain are encouraged to get in touch to arrange a visit.

To make an application, parents need to apply via the Shropshire Council admissions portal ( The application will be processed and if places are available you will be offered a place for your child. The process can take up to 10 working days.
