Admissions

180 places are available in each Year 7 group.

Cumbria County Council administers admissions for students from 11-16 years of age in the same way as for other local schools. Information and application forms will be made available through primary schools in September for completion and submission in October in their Year 6. Those offered places will be notified in the following March. Although applications can be made for students wherever they live, priority for places will be in line with standard Local Authority criteria in the following order; students in public care and/or a statement of special educational needs, siblings and geography. Students living in the Academy’s DGA (designated geographical area) will receive priority for places over those outside when geography is being considered.

For in-year admissions, please complete the In-Year Admissions Form and send to the address below.
