Primary Academy



Admissions in to the Corby Primary Academy.

The Corby Primary Academy provides education for children within the 4 -11 age range in the Corby area.

For the 2018/2019 Academic year, we will accommodate children from Reception to Year 6.

For Reception year, in the year preceding admission, parents should apply using the Northamptonshire Local Authority process. All applications to Reception year starting September 2018 must be completed and submitted to the Local Authority by 5pm on 15 January 2018. Any applications for Reception year made after this date will be deemed as late and will go into the next run of allocations after 18 April 2018.

Parents will receive their offer of a school place on 16 April 2018.

For all other in-year admissions, parents must apply for a place through the Local Authority.

The statutory consultation period for the Corby Primary Academy will run from:

Monday 30 October 2017 to Friday 8 December 2017

Comments are invited from parents and also Local Authorities, local schools and other Admissions Authorities on this proposal.

If you wish to respond to these proposals, you can either email the Academy at or write to us with your views.

Please mark your envelope 'Admissions Consultation' and send it for the attention of Mrs R Warhurst, Office Manager, by Friday 8 December 2017.

There will be a right of appeal to an Independent Appeals Panel for unsuccessful applicants relating to admissions at age 5 (statutory school age) or above. Appeals should be made within twenty (20) school days of the date of refusal.

Please be aware that the regulations under Section I of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998 limit the size of an infant class (a class in which the majority of children will reach the age of 5, 6 or 7 during the school year) to 30 pupils per class teacher. Admissions over this limit are only permitted in very limited circumstances.

If refused admission, you should contact the Local Authority, in writing, to lodge an appeal.
