Admissions

Reception intake in September 2024

Reception places will be offered, via the local authorities, on 16 April 2024. Families who completed the local authorities Common Application / Preference Form (CAF / CPF) will be advised by their local authority of the school allocated to their child on this date.

The Academy receives more applications than there are places available. Places were filled in line with the oversubscription criteria stated in the Admissions and Appeals Policy (available from the Downloads section below). If your child was not allocated a place, this was solely because they did not qualify as high as other children on the list. For example, the distance of your address is further away than other children on the list or they do not have a sibling (brother / sister) at the Academy.

If you want to keep your child on the waiting list for the Academy (or any other school that you applied for), you should complete and return the local authority’s Reception Waiting List form (available from the Downloads section below).

If you have not yet completed a local authority Common Application Form (CAF) you should complete the Reception Late Application Form (available in the Downloads section below).

If you completed a CAF but you did not make 5 preferences, and you wish to add Dixons Marchbank as a preference, then you can complete the Reception additional preference form (also available in the Downloads section below).
