Welcome to Cotham Gardens Primary School

In Year Admissions

Although we are a popular school, places do occasionally become available in year groups as families move.

If you wish to apply for a place at Cotham Gardens Primary School, you should apply to Bristol City Council who co-ordinate our 'in year' admissions.
