Admission applications are managed through the Derbyshire Co-ordinated Admissions Scheme and are in line with the Derbyshire Admission arrangements for community and voluntary controlled schools.

As a member of  the EMBARK Federation Multi-academy Trust, we are required to set and publish our own admissions criteria.

As a Derbyshire County Council school we are required to give places to children unless we have reached our capacity.  This refers to the total number of children in school rather than class size.  For all practical purposes this means that admission is granted to all who apply within our catchment area.

Parents of pupils in Year 2 who have made an application to join us, will be invited to a meeting in the summer term to exchange information, meet our staff and answer any questions you may have.

If you are new to Kilburn, we prefer you to visit us before your child starts school, to show you around and have a general chat about your child, your expectations of us and our expectations of you and your child.

All applications to the school must be made online at

If you have any questions about your child starting at Kilburn Junior School, please call the office.
