Under the provision of the 1980 Education Act, parents may exercise preference in the choice of schools for their children. Although this is an important principle, if parents do not choose the "designated" school (normally the nearest appropriate school to your home) they become responsible for their children's transport arrangements. The following is a breakdown of the "designated" schools for children living in Families Quarters at Marham. For further details, please contact the Headteacher of the school, the Local Education Authority (01553) 773643 or RAF Marham's Education Coordinator on Ext 7291.
