Our normal admission year is Year 7, when we admit students from a wide range of primary schools. Applications for admission are made via the Northamptonshire Co-ordinated Admissions scheme.

Applications for September 2017 intake (Year 7) closed on Monday 31st October 2016 at 5pm. The Local Authority will advise of notification of places by post or online, if you applied online, on Wednesday 1st March (National Secondary School Allocation Day).

We participate in the Local Authority Co-ordinated Scheme for In Year admissions and operate a waiting list for admissions in years 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11. If a space becomes available, spaces are allocated according to our over subscription admissions criteria, from the waiting list.
