School Admissions

We are part of the Nicholas Postgate Catholic Academy Trust. Our admission policy has been updated and remains firmly based on the Core Values that make our school go from strength to strength.

Admissions Policy

Our admissions policy can be found under Policies – Statutory

Applications must be made on the Local Authority Common Application Form. Parents
applying to a Catholic Academy should also complete the Supplementary Information
Form (SIF) as if the academy is oversubscribed; the information contained within the
SIF will allow the Board of Directors to identify which over subscription criteria your
application is to be considered against. All forms must be returned by the closing date
set by the Local Authority. Failure to provide a Supplementary Information Form (SIF)
could affect the category your application is placed in. Please note that it is the
responsibility of the parent/carer to complete all forms and supply evidence – reminders
will not be sent.

Children with an Educational Health and Care Plan which names our academy in their
plan will be admitted to the academy.
