In Year Admissions (Years 7-11) Academic Year 2023-24

Currently, there are no in-year vacancies and the waiting list is now closed for this academic year. The waiting list for the academic year 2024-25 will open in September. 

In-year vacancies normally only become available if a current pupil is leaving the school.

The school is undergoing expansion and projected cohort sizes are listed below. In all cases this simply reflects the increased cohorts progressing through the school:

Year group 2023-24

2024-25 (current)

2025-26 (TBC)
7 150 150 150
8 150 150 150
9 120 150 150
10 150 120 150
11 120 150 120


At any point from January after the pupil starts Year 7, parents/carers may apply for a place at the school.

Any applicant who cannot be offered a place will be added to the school’s waiting list and parents/carers will be informed of their right of appeal. If a vacancy arises, candidates on the waiting list will be invited to take a test and the place will be awarded to the highest scoring candidate above a minimum standard. We also prefer students to be studying French or German at their current school.

Parents/carers will need to reapply at the start of each academic year if they want their child to be included on the waiting list where a place cannot be offered.

The Academy aims to notify parents/carers of the outcome of their in-year application within 10 school days, and we will notify parents/carers in writing within 15 school days.
