Please note that as an Academy we have appointed Dorset Council to manage Normal Year of Entry (Y5 September intake) applications, on our behalf. Please see Dorsetforyou for details and contact the School Admissions Team if you have any questions.  Tel. 01305 221060 or email: 


Applications for outside the September intake or for other year groups should also be made via the Dorset Council.  


SEN admission applications (for pupils who have a EHCP), including those pupils transferring from Year 4 to 5 or Year 8 to 9, have to be made via the Local Authority SEN admissions department.  All SEN admissions are made via consultation with the Local Authority.


In accordance with the Legal requirements, the Governors of The Dorchester Middle School publish their admissions policy. The arrangements are reviewed annually by the Governors.
