Admission Criteria

Any child with an Education, Health and Care Plan is required to be admitted to the School named in the plan. This gives such children overall priority for admission to the School. This is not an oversubscription criterion.

Where there are more applications than places at the School, each preference expressed by a parent for Hamstead Hall Academy is considered equally with those of other applicants  and places are offered  in accordance  with the admission criteria as follows:

 1. Looked after or previously looked after children

 2. Children with a brother or sister already at the academy who will still be in attendance in September 2023

 3. Children who are currently in Year 6 at Grestone Academy.

 4. Children who live nearest the Academy.

Within each of these categories, priority is given to those who live nearest to the School, calculated on the basis of a straight-line measurement between home and the Academy.
