Choosing Fellgate Primary School for your child or children

We are delighted that you would like your child/children to join our school family in September 2021. At Fellgate, we pride ourselves on our friendly and welcoming approach to our families and would normally have an Open Afternoon to show you around. However, due to COVID restrictions in schools we are unable to hold our usual Open Afternoon.

Instead we will attach a video of our Reception classroom very soon. The video will be taken by our Reception teacher Mrs Malone. We hope you enjoy her guided tour of the Reception classroom.
