At Marlborough Road Academy, we try to accommodate all children who want to come here, although places will be offered in line with our admissions criteria.
Children currently in another primary school can be admitted to Marlborough Road Academy at any appropriate age but will only be admitted at certain times throughout the year. The in-year admission dates are as follows:
- First week of Autumn Term (September)
- First week after October Half Term holiday
- First week of Spring Term (January)
- First week after February Half Term holiday
- First week of Summer Term (April)
- First week after Whit Half Term (June)
Whilst children are waiting to be admitted, they will be given work to complete at home and will visit the school at pre-arranged times to help them integrate into their new class.
The Academy will allocate a place in the required year group if one is available. If a place is not available, their name will be placed on a waiting list at Marlborough Road Academy and your application will be referred to the Local Authority and you will be sent a list of schools that do have places available.
Children moving into the area and not currently in a school will be admitted as soon as a place becomes available.
If you would like your child to attend Marlborough Road Academy, you will need to complete an application form. Once this is received we will then contact you regarding your application.
