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 policies available to download from the links in the left-hand menu.
The responsibility for the administration of the Admissions process remains with the Local Authority, Cambridgeshire County Council.
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. Pupils will be admitted without reference to ability or aptitude. Please contact the Admissions Officer on 01954 284028 to make arrangements.
Children living in the catchment area of the following feeder primary schools in Cambourne:

Applying for a Year 7 place
The application process for admissions into year 7 is co-ordinated by Cambridgeshire Local Authority (LA), which acts on behalf of the governing body to offer places at the College.
Parents should apply online at www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/residents/children-and-families/schools-&-learning/apply-for-a-school-place/secondary-school/ or submit a Cambridgeshire Application Form, available from their child’s primary school or from the LA Admissions team, no later than the LA deadline at the end of October. Offer letters will be issued by the LA on the National Offer Date (1st March or first working day after). Late applications (those submitted between the October deadline and the end of the co-ordination period) will be handled by the LA Admissions team.
For further information and specific dates, please refer to the full scheme for secondary co-ordination, available from the LA Admissions Team or from the website www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/residents/children-and-families/schools-&-learning/apply-for-a-school-place/secondary-school/.
