If you wish to apply for a place in Year 7 at The Academy you must apply through your own home authority (e.g. Cheshire East for Cheshire East residents and Trafford for Trafford residents etc.) For admissions into Year 7 all parents receive formal letters from their Local Education Authority. The final date for applications is the end of October. Places will be allocated according to our Admissions Policy.


We welcome Year 7 applications from students who live out of the catchment area and have a long tradition of students attending the school who live in the south Manchester area and also Northwich.

Please refer to our Admissions Policy which you can find in the About Us menu.

The timetable for Admissions to Year 7 in September 2024 is shown below.


The timetable for appeals will be published by 28th February each year.

Late applications will be considered if there are still places available at the Academy. Late appeal hearings will take place within 40 days of the deadline where possible or within 30 school working days of the appeal being received.
