Admissions

Important information about appeal deadlines:
 

In light of the current school’s closure as a result of the impact of the outbreak of COVID-19, all successful applicants due to start with us in September 2020 should scan and email their completed documentation to admissions@ccs.northants.sch.uk.

Welcome to the admissions section.  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 are high but as an all-through school, students who are admitted to our primary phase 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.

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.

We are part of Northamptonshire County Council’s co-ordinated admissions scheme.  All applications to our school (except for our post-16 phase which are made directly to us) however, are first made via Northamptonshire County Council. Please see their website at 
www.northamptonshire.gov.uk/admissions for an application form.

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 for transition years are:

Foundation Stage – 60 places

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

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