The Local Authority manages the admission and appeals process for Bentley and Copdock Schools. The procedure is set out in Suffolk schools' admission booklet each year. Further information on how to apply for a school place is available on their website. Suffolk County Council admissions information

Pupil Admission Numbers (PAN) are as follows for our schools:

Copdock - 10 pupils (although we have been able to offer 12 places)               

Bentley - 8 pupils

Although our schools can sometimes be oversubscribed, we do occasionally have places within other year groups due to family moves. If you would like to know more information about available spaces, please contact the school offices.

We have a thorough induction process for our new Early Years children during the summer term. This supports both children and parents to prepare for their new adventures into primary school. For more information see our Induction Pages below and our School Tour.

If we can be of any assistance in the application process please contact the appropriate school office.

We welcome visits from prospective parents throughout the school year but hold annual open events in November to share more information about the provision we have on offer.


Bentley School's Christian Ethos

"Know that I am with you always," Matthew 28:20 We encourage the spiritual, social, moral and cultural development of the school family by embedding Christian values into everyday life. Our vision is for all children to be confident individuals, successful learners and responsible citizens who are well equipped for future life, knowing that God is with them always.
