How to apply for a place at our academy

Please see the document below - Applying for a primary school place and also the Admission policies below.

Reception intake - primary and infant schools 

In Northamptonshire, all children are offered a full year in reception.

Primary schools run from reception to year 6 and take new children into reception. Infant schools run from reception to year 2 and take new children into reception.

If your child turns 4 between 1 September 2022 and 31 August 2023, you should apply for their reception place by 15 January 2023. After this date, you will need to make a late application.

How to appeal for a place at our academy

If you have applied and been refused a place at our school (in any year group), you are entitled to appeal against that decision.

Appeals for PDET academies are administered by The Diocese of Peterborough Education team. For more information on the process please see: www.peterborough-diocese.org.uk/church-schools/admission-and-appeals/

If you wish to appeal please contact the Appeals Administrator by emailing education@peterborough-diocese.org.uk and ask for an appeals pack.

The pack includes some explanatory notes about the process of Admission Appeals and a Notice of Appeal form that, should you decide to proceed with an appeal, will need to be completed and returned by email if possible, but if not, to the Diocesan Office instead.
