Applications for school places for other year groups (including Nursery) or Reception mid-year should be made directly to the Academy. Please call in to collect an application form.

ADMISSION CRITERIA

When there are more applications than places available at the school the following criteria will be used to determine which children will be allocated places:
1. Looked After Children (in public care).
2. Children with a brother or sister already at the academy who will still be in attendance in September 2019.
3. Children who live nearest to the academy.
Within each of these categories, priority is given to those who live nearest to the academy, calculated on the basis of a straight-line measurement between home and the academy.
