Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Admissions Policy

We will have 60 places available in Reception each year from September 2016. 

If we are oversubscribed, children with a statement of Special Educational Need that names the Academy will be given places first.  After this, places would be allocated to:

  • Looked After and previously Looked After children.
  • Children who the Harris Federation accepts have an exceptional medical or social need for a place at the Academy.
  • As we get brothers and sisters applying, children who have a sibling at the Academy at the time of admission.
  • Children who live closest to the Academy according to straight-line distance.
