Enrolling for school

Children in the Isle of Man start their primary school journey at the beginning of the academic year in which they turn five.

It means parents and guardians of pupils who turn five on or after 1 September 2024 are required to register as soon as possible by the end of January by contacting the school in the catchment area in which they reside.

Each school sits within a catchment area. Any parent unsure which catchment area they reside in should go the green ‘Maps’ button in the bottom right hand corner and enter the information into ‘address search’, then click on ‘local information’ and view ‘my school catchment’. Parents can contact the Department of Education, Sport and Culture on +44 1624 685808 if they need further support.

The new school year will start on Wednesday 4 September 2024.
