Children coming into reception year are admitted to school in September of the school year when they have their 5th birthday (i.e. between 1st September and 31st August).

At Eastgate Academy, we have 30 places in reception and 15 places in year 3 each September. Pupils coming into year 3 come to us from our feeder school, Highgate Infants.  For information on Highgate Infants School please click here.

During the summer term each year, we hold open evenings for the September intake for reception and year 3 and there are also various opportunities for parents and new children to come into school to help with the settling in process.

High schools in King’s Lynn where pupils go after leaving Eastgate Academy in Year 6 include:

King Edward VII Academy

Springwood High School

The high schools have open days during the autumn term each year when prospective parents and pupils can look round the schools. Details of these can be found on each school’s website.
