Apply for your 2017/18 place

Where the number of applications for admission is greater than the published admissions number, applications will be considered against the criteria set out below.

Children with an Education Health Care Plan, where the Academy is named on the plan, are automatically entitled to a place.

The allocation of the remaining places is as follows:

  • Children in public care at the time when preferences are expressed and who are still in public care at the time of their admission to the Academy, and those who have been previously looked after (see note (i) below).
  • Children of staff who have, (i) been employed at the Academy for two or more years, at the time at which the application for admission to the Academy is made, or (ii) have been recruited to fill a vacant post for which there is a demonstrable skill shortage.
  • Those applicants who on the date of admission will have a sibling on the roll of the Academy at the time of admission. Siblings (brothers or sisters) are considered to be those children who live at the same address and either:
  • have one or both natural parents in common.
  • are related by a parent’s marriage.
  • are adopted or are fostered.
  • their parents are married/co-habiting and children live together in the same household/are children of the same household.

Geographical, with priority given to those living nearest to the school (see notes (ii) below)*. 

If the Academy is over-subscribed after the allocation of those with Education Health Care Plans and children under criteria 1, 2, and 3, then the geographical criteria will be used as a tie-breaker.

The highest priority must be given to looked after children (1) and children who were looked after, but ceased to be so because they were adopted (2) (or became subject to a residence order (3) or special guardianship order (4). Further references to previously looked after children in the Code means children who were adopted (or subject to residence orders or special guardianship orders), immediately following having been looked after.

The measurement of distance is the shortest available safe route for pedestrians along footpaths, using footpaths alongside roads marked on the current street map of the City. Front entrance of home property (residence) to main entrance of the Academy site is used.

The Authority will use Routefinder, a computer mapping system, to make measurements.
