Northampton School Admissions

If you are interested in coming to have a look around our school, we would be only too happy to help. Please contact our school office and arrange for a tour with our Headteacher, Mrs Watts. 

For admissions the  following criteria will be used:

  1. Pupils with a statement of Special Educational Needs, which names the school as appropriate provision and children in public care.
  2. Pupils with an older brother or sister continuing at the school at the time of admission of the younger child.
  3. Pupils who live closer to the preferred school than any other school.
  4. Other pupils.

If the admission number is exceeded within any of these groups priority will be given to those who live furthest from the nearest alternative school.


If you have been refused a place at one or more of your preferred schools, you are entitled to appeal against that decision. You are required to fill out an appeals form, details of which can be found on the Northamptonshire County Council website. Please click here to be transferred to the School Appeals page.
