We welcome anyone considering applying to Diamond Hall Junior Academy to come and visit our school and see first-hand why it is a great place to send your child in their vital formative years.


The North East Learning Trust is the admissions authority and determines admissions in accordance with the Admissions Policy, available to download below.

Children attending infant schools transfer to junior schools in September 2020 if they were born between 1 September 2013 and 31 August 2014.

The deadline for applications to primary schools is January. Parents can apply for a place by completing an application form found on the Sunderland City Council website below using the link at the bottom of this page.
