Admissions

As an Academy, the Governors are responsible for establishing the Admission Criteria and Oversubscription Criteria for the School. These are set out in our Admissions Policy.

The responsibility for the administration of the Admissions process remains with the Local Authority, Cambridgeshire County Council.

The College has applied to the Local Authority to increase the Published Admission Number for Years 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 to 210 students. The College will admit up to 210 students in each year group from September 2017.  Pupils will be admitted without reference to ability or aptitude.

Parents wishing to visit the school prior to submitting an application are welcome to do so. Visits are usually conducted in small groups, and are not interviews and do not affect any decision regarding the availability of a place. Please contact the Admissions Officer on 01954 284028 to make arrangements.
