How and When to apply

Applications must be made on the Local Authority Common Application Form. Parents
applying to a Catholic Academy should also complete the Supplementary Information Form
(SIF) as if the academy is oversubscribed; the information contained within the SIF will allow
the Board of Directors to identify which over subscription criteria your application is to be
considered against. All forms must be returned by the closing date set by the Local Authority.
Failure to provide a Supplementary Information Form (SIF) could affect the category your
application is placed in. Please note that it is the responsibility of the parent/carer to
complete all forms and supply evidence – reminders will not be sent.

Children with an Educational Health and Care Plan which names our academy in their
plan will be admitted to the academy.
