Consultation on Admission Arrangements for September 2021
All admission authorities are required to formally consult if they propose to make any changes to their admission arrangements for the following school year. We have consulted on our admission arrangements for September 2021 and you can find a copy of our revised admission arrangements in our Admissions Policy for Academic Year 2021 below.
All Admissions are dealt with by Northamptonshire County Council, this applies to pupils being admitted into Reception at the beginning of the academic year and any mid-year transfers. Please see the Northamptonshire County Council website for further information:
