Orchards Academy admits 120 students in Year 7. All Year 7 admissions are processed by the Local Education Authority and we adhere to its Admissions policy as follows:
· Looked after pupils will be given first priority ahead of all other applications
Pupils living in the priority admissions area of the school with a sibling attending at the time of application and admission.
Other pupils living in the priority admissions area.
Pupils living outside the priority admissions area with a sibling attending at the time of application and admission.
In the event of over-subscription with any of the above criteria, priority will be determined by the straight line distance from home to school, those living closest being given highest priority. Exceptional medical circumstances (supported by medical evidence) may override the above.
Application forms can be obtained from your child’s Primary School.
