Christ the King Catholic Primary School, within the Diocese of Clifton, serves the Parish of Christ the King, Amesbury.

The majority of our pupils live within Amesbury, although our school family also includes pupils from the villages and areas beyond the town.  We are proud to provide a robust mainstream curriculum for pupils of all faiths and none, whilst our SEN Resource Base provides a bespoke curriculum for SEN children in the South of Wiltshire. The application process for our Resource Base is separate to our mainstream school, and is managed by the SEN team in Wiltshire LA.

Applying to the mainstream school at Christ the King School does not in any way mean a future place in the Resource Base is more likely to be allocated to your child.  Please contact us if you would like more information about this.

The governing body, acting in accordance with the Code of Practice and the Clifton Diocesan Policy Statement, is responsible for the admission of pupils.
