New starters for September 2023

Choosing the right school for your child is a really important decision. We encourage prospective parents to visit our school during a typical school day so you can see first-hand what we at Awsworth can offer your child as they embark on their school learning journey. 

We believe that the best way to get a feel for our school is to visit, as the children are at the centre of all we do.

Visits are by appointment only, with a maximum of 2 adult places per household. Please contact the school office by calling 0115 9321 926 or email
