Primary and Secondary Admissions
Note: parents wanting a place at the normal point of entry (reception at primary phase, year 7 at secondary phase) must apply via their home local authority, not the local authority where the school is situated. If you live in Northampton this means you will need to apply via West Northamptonshire Council as outlined below.
We follow the Northamptonshire Co-ordinated in-year Admissions Scheme, so to apply for a place you need to fill in the Northamptonshire Admissions Form which is available on the West Northamptonshire Council website. You may also ask for your child’s name to be added to our waiting lists.

(In-Year admission means admission to a current year group within either the primary or secondary phase (current Reception – Year 11) for a child who is already attending school but wishes to change schools due to relocation or a change in circumstances)
Offering places from the waiting list
If places become available in previously full year groups, all applicants currently on the waiting list will be considered. If there are more children on the waiting list in the relevant year group than places available the schools oversubscription criteria is applied. Available places will be assigned base on the relevant criterion to your child’s school phase.
Parents who have applied for, but have not been successful in obtaining a place for their child at our school, have the right to appeal. Please see the EMAT website for more information.
