School Admissions

As a maintained school, our admissions are controlled and managed by Portsmouth City Council. See here for more information.


Pupils currently in Year 2 at Mayfield WILL NOT have to apply to go into Year 3; children will automatically transfer into the junior section of the school (and again into the senior section).  You should not have received any communication about junior transfer from the local authority and if you have, please phone Admissions on 023 9268 8008 or email
