Admissions into Reception for September 2017
An Open Evening will be held on Wednesday 23 November from 5.00pm until 6.00pm.
There will be an opportunity to tour the school and meet staff, as well as finding out about the curriculum and what the Academy has to offer your child. The evening will begin with a short presentation from the Principal at 5.00pm.
Parents apply by naming the Academy on the local authorities' Common Application Form. You will receive information concerning this from your child's nursery, pre-school setting, or your local authority, in November. If you do not receive this information, please contact your local authority's admissions department.
Parents can also choose to apply for one of 6 music specialist places at the Academy. If you wish to apply for one of these places, please complete the supplementary form (click here) and return it before 3.30pm on Friday 25 November 2016. The Supplementary Form is also available for collection from the Academy Reception or at the Open Evening.

Because we are part of a coordinated admission scheme, you also need to complete an In-Year Application Form for the local authority in order to be eligible for a place if a vacancy occurs.
The In-Year form is available by downloading it from their website (see address below) or by contacting the Admissions Team at the local authority:
Where vacancies do occur, places are decided by random allocation (in line with the School Admissions Code) and by applying our oversubscription criteria (see Admissions & Appeals Policy).
