Transferring to our academy

If you would like to join our academy please complete Norfolk County Council’s in-year admissions form which can be found here

 

If our academy is oversubscribed

If there are more requests for places than places available, the authority will admit children in the following order of priority:

1. Looked after pupils and previously Looked After Children (children who are in the care of the Local Authority or provided with accommodation by the Local Authority in accordance with section 22 of the Children’s Act 1989)

2. Pupils living in the area served by the academy who have a brother or sister attending the academy at the time of their admission. When we use ‘brother’ or ‘sister’ in oversubscription rules this means: brothers or sisters living at the same address including adopted children, step-brothers, step-sisters and children in foster care within a family unit

3. Pupils living in the area served by the academy who have no brother or sister connection with the academy

4. Pupils living outside the area served by the academy who have a brother or sister attending the academy at the time of their admission

5. Pupils living outside the area served by the academy and attend a feeder school at the opening date of the admission round

6. Pupils living outside the area served by the academy who have no brother or sister or feeder school connection with the academy

 

Due to the all-through structure of the academy, all pupils at the Hockwold site will automatically be given places at the Methwold site when they transfer into year 7.  Parents of these children at Hockwold do not therefore need to apply for a place.
