How To Apply
If you would like to apply for a place at our foundation stage, you will need to register your child by logging onto the Kirklees Admissions website.
You need to apply between 1 September 2021 and 15 January 2022.
Children can start reception year at primary school from the September after celebrating their fourth birthday.
If your child is in an existing school or if you are new to the area, you should complete an ICAF Form and hand it into the academy.
The ICAF (In-Year Common Application Form) is used by parents/carers to apply for their child to change school during the school year.
An in-year admission is when a child already
attends a school but wants to transfer to another school.
