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 are still in attendance. If you are applying for a future Reception place, you will be entitled to a sibling place if you have a child in Year 6 in the current academic year, but who will not be in the September that the Reception child is due to start at school.

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.
