Our website aims to provide you with a glimpse of what our school has to offer – we hope you find it useful. If you’d like any further information, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Interested in a Reception place for a September 2017 start?

At Tranmere Park, we, along with all other Aireborough Learning Partnership schools, follow the Leeds City Council admissions procedure as follows:

Parents of children born between 1st September 2012 and 31st August 2013 are now able to apply for their child’s reception place. Parents have from 1st November 2016 until 15th January 2017 to complete their application.

Parents have two options when applying, they can apply using the online system or by completing a paper form. If a parent chooses to apply online they will be informed of their school offer via email on national offer day (18th April 2017). If a parent completes a paper form their offer will be sent by post on 18th April 2017 (2nd class). Applying online is the preferable option. The benefits of applying online are:

• it is quick and easy to use

• there is no risk your application will be lost in the post

• you will receive email confirmation that your application has been received

• you can change/amend your application up to midnight on the closing date

• you will receive your offer by email on national offer day

To assist with the online process, Leeds City Council have created an instructional Youtube video.

If you would like to find out more about our school, please have a look at our website.

Wanting a school place in Year Groups other than Reception?

We’re currently full in all year groups but if Tranmere Park will be your nearest school, please contact us as our Governors have made a commitment to try to accommodate pupils for whom Tranmere Park will be their nearest school if class sizes permit. We’ll do our best to help.

Want to know more?

At Tranmere Park, we’re proud of our friendly, happy and caring school. Each pupil is valued and encouraged to achieve to the best of their abilities. We’re also a very successful place to learn – promoting early achievement in the core skills of reading, writing and mathematics and with very high levels of attainment throughout school – KS2 results place us at the top of league tables in Leeds and in the top 5% of schools nationally. You can find more information about how we are performing on our standards page.

We were also very proud to have been included in the latest ‘The Times’ top 500 schools list. The whole school is proud of this achievement – we’ve improved children’s outcomes at the end of each Key Stage considerably over the last 7 years, and faster than similar schools.

Our main aim is for our children to thoroughly enjoy their time with us and therefore our wider curriculum is exciting with a strong emphasis on personal and social development, physical education, modern foreign languages and the Arts. Look at some of the photos on the class pages to see what we get up to! We ensure that our children are well equipped both socially and academically to transfer to High School with confidence.

We’re also an inclusive school and ensure that all children’s contributions and successes are valued and celebrated. We offer a wide range of extra curricular activities for children of all ages and before and after school care is offered on site. The value of positive links between home and school is really important to us and we work closely with parents to ensure maximum benefits for each and every child.

Children at Tranmere Park are taught in a well equipped, stimulating environment by a team of talented and dedicated staff. The school is fortunate to be situated in an attractive setting and enjoys an excellent local reputation. Why not visit the Ofsted web site and read our ‘Outstanding’ inspection report!

I’m tremendously proud of our school. We want every Tranmere Park pupil to enjoy a successful and rewarding primary school life.
