Cogenhoe Primary School is an academy Primary School, part of the Nene Valley Partnership Multi-Academy Trust. Prior to academy conversion in September 2022, the Governors agreed to accept the Admission Policy guidelines produced by West Northamptonshire Council.

Children are admitted to school at the beginning of the school year (September – August ) in which they are 5.

The online application process opens in September and closes on 15th January. Parents are advised if they have been successful in securing a place on the 16th April or the next working day. Details of how late applications are dealt with can be found on the West Northamptonshire Council admissions webpages.

The PAN (pupil admission number) which has been determined for our school is 30. This is the number of pupils which can be accepted for each class unless Northamptonshire Admissions determine otherwise, usually following an appeal.
