Help submitting applications

Choosing a secondary school is a big decision for you and your child, and we are here to help you through the application process.

This year we will organise a number of ‘drop ins’ where parents can meet with a member of the senior leadership team who will help to submit applications.

The dates are:

  • Tuesday 17 October – 9:00am -10:30am
  • Thursday 19 October – 2pm -3:30pm

We are here to help .  Mr Coughlan, our Year 6 leader, and the Co-Headteachers are happy to assist and and advise.  Please either email or phone the Academy and someone will call you back.
