This page tells you about how to apply to the Academy, how to appeal if you are unsuccessful and where to find further information.
Please look at our calendar for open evening dates. Our full admissions policy, with details of our admissions criteria, can be downloaded from the bottom of the page.
Parents are also advised to read the advice given by Thurrock Local Authority which includes how and when to apply, what to do if you wish to appeal and how to apply late or make 'in year' applications. The advice also incudes catchment area information by address. All this guidance can be accessed here.
Admission authorities (individual academies) must consult on their admission arrangements at least once every seven years, even if the arrangements have not changed during that time.
