Our Academy is part of E-ACT, a multi-academy trust. E-ACT is the Admissions Authority for the Academy and has a planned admission number (PAN) at 210 for year 7.
What happens if I’ve missed the application deadline?
You can still apply directly to the local council. Please get in touch with us for more information.
When will I hear if my application has been successful?
Depending on when you apply, it will be after the first round of offers have been made and processed.
What if I had an exceptional circumstance as to why I could not apply on time?
You will need to contact the local council and they will let you know whether they can accept any supporting evidence and take it into consideration on the application being submitted late.
What happens after I’ve submitted our choices?
Once you have submitted your choices to your Local Authority, your formal offer of a place will come from the Local Authority who will write to parents/carers on National Offer Day in March 2024 allocating a single secondary school to your child.
