Children start at Milecastle Primary School in Reception, which is part of the Early Years Foundation Stage. We understand that choosing the right school for your child is such an important decision and want you to feel confident in that decision. We are happy to support any questions you have regarding admissions for your child. Please email the school office on or contact us via telephone on 0191 2674510. There is also lots of information on our website about what we can offer, including in our class blogs in the News and Events section.

Each year we offer open evenings in order for you to come into school for a guided tour of Milecastle and chance to ask any questions you may have about our school and what we offer. Please check here for details of upcoming open evenings in autumn term.
