From Monday 23rd of March 2020 the academy will be closed and only open, offering a reduced provision, for the children of key workers.


The age range of our children is 3-11 years. Staffordshire County Council is the Admissions authority for the academy.

For Mid Year Admissions


This guidance is for parents or carers of children already of school age who are wishing to move to a Staffordshire school during the school year.

Please note: If you wish to apply for a school in another Local Authority area please contact that authority for details of how to apply.


How do I change my child's school?


You will need to complete a Mid-year application form.

Please note:

  • All sections of the application form must be completed.
  • The form should be returned directly to your preferred school. The school will then notify you of the outcome.
  • Anyone with parental responsibility can apply. However, parents are expected to agree on school places before an application is made. The local authority or admission authority is not in a position to intervene in disputes between parents over school applications and will ask that these are resolved privately
