Applications for entry to the academy for the current Reception and for all other year groups (known as in year admissions) should be made directly to Sutton Council – link is here. Only when a space becomes available do we rank the list and offer the place to the highest on the list according to our criteria. We are therefore unable to inform those on the list of their position.

Tours of the Academy for September admissions – parents wishing to come and see the Academy action are welcome to join a tour from September to December, led by a senior leader, who will also answer your questions. Tours take around an hour and it is helpful if there are no children present, as they can disrupt the learning of children in the classrooms. Please telephone the office (020 8669 7588) to book a tour, and please mention if you have any access requirements.
