Information about applying
Applications to the Academy should be made via the local authority/council CPF (Common Preference Form). You will need to name the Academy as one of your school preferences on that form.
Places will be filled in line with the oversubscription criteria as outlined in our Admissions Guidance document (see Downloads section below). If you are applying for a place under the:
- Previously looked-after child criterion, you will also need to complete the Previously Looked-After Child form (available in the Downloads section below) and submit this and the supporting evidence, directly to the Academy. This is required in addition to submission of the Common Preference Form.
- Exceptional medical or social need criterion, you will also need to complete the Exceptional Need Supplementary Form (available in the Downloads section below) and submit this and the supporting evidence, directly to the Academy. This is required in addition to submission of the Common Preference Form.
- Children of staff criterion, you will also need to send a letter or e-mail to the Governing Body of the Academy, sent via the Admissions Officer at the Academy, stating the name, post, and length of service of the member of staff and the child’s name and date of birth. This is required in addition to submission of the Common Preference Form.

If a vacancy does occur, the Academy will look at the waiting list and children will be prioritised in accordance with the oversubscription criteria (see In-Year Guidance document in the Downloads section below). The local authority will then allocate the place in the order of the waiting list and in line with parental preference (as specified on the application).
