Our admissions policy  is similar to that of other local schools. However, there is no ‘catchment’. If the school becomes over-subscribed then admissions will be decided on distance from the school.  Please follow the links below for our current admission policies:

If your child is already at secondary school and for any reason you want to change school during the year, there may be places available at the Academy. Please apply via Devon County Council, selecting the ‘in year admissions’ option.
