There are 45 places in each year group for pupils joining our academy. Applications are made through the common North East Lincolnshire process, which you can read about here:
- Looked after children (children in public care) or a child who was previously looked after.
- Living in the catchment area.
- Having brothers or sisters who are already at the school/academy when your child is due to start there.
- The last factor is geographical. We will give priority to those living nearest to the school/academy (if there is more than one route, the distance measured is the shortest available safe route for pedestrians), from the front door of the child’s home address (including flats) to the main entrance of the school/academy, using the local authority’s computerised measuring system. The admissions transfer letter will give you more information or you can contact the School Admissions Team for more advice.
If you are not offered a place at your preferred school, you will be given the right of appeal against the decision. Information about how to appeal can be found on the North East Lincolnshire Council website. Please click here to be transferred to the appeals page.
30 hours free childcare is available for 3 and 4 year olds. This is double the 15 hours which was previously available and could save working families up to £5,000 a year. You can check your eligibility using the online calculator and, if eligible, apply online. You will then receive a code which you can bring into school and we will check it with the local authority. If eligible, you can the book your child’s 30 hours place (subject to availability). Use this link to check if your child is eligible:
