Welcome to our admissions page

We currently have school places available in our Reception and Year 1 intakes. All other year groups are full and have a waiting list.

To make an in-year application to our school for Reception or Year 1, or to request to be added to the waiting list for other year groups, please visit the Local Authority's website via: School Admissions | West Northamptonshire Council (

We have grown substantially since opening our doors in September 2004 and are currently home to in excess of 2000 students.  Demand for places at our school is high but as an all-through school, pupils that are admitted to our primary phase and remain until end of Year 6, automatically transition into Year 7 without the need for parents to re-apply.

A copy of our current Admissions Policy and further relevant information and documents can be found at the foot of this page.  All applications to our school (except for our post-16 phase which are made directly to us) must first be made to West Northamptonshire Council. Please go to for more details on in-year and co-ordinated applications.  

As well as the transition to Early Years Foundation Stage and Year 7, we always welcome applications from students who wish to request an in-year transfer.  For in-year applications, where a year group is full, we operate a waiting list which lasts until the end of the academic year for which the application is made. If you wish to keep your child on the waiting list for any subsequent academic year, you must re-apply as above.

Our published admission number (PAN) for our transition years are:

Foundation Stage – 60 places

Year 7 – 219 external places (in addition to 60 places for our Year 6 Primary phase pupils)

Sixth Form - 30 external places (in addition to existing Year 11 students who wish to apply) - all applicants are subject to our minimum entry requirements for Sixth Form. 

All applicants, including those on the waiting list where an in-year place becomes available, are considered and allocated a space in accordance with our admissions criteria.  Our current admissions criteria for each phase of our school can be found at the foot of this page.
