Information regarding admission to Churchdown School Academy
Our aim is simple: we want to be the very best school possible for all the students in our care. We want to be able to say, hand on heart, that our students could not have received a better education in any other school.
Admission into Year 7 in September
The school’s admission criteria sets out admission preferences in case of over-subscription. Admission is organised county wide by the local authority, Gloucestershire County Council. Parents are asked to complete an online application form (paper copies are available upon request) by the deadline set by local authority and are normally advised on 1 March preceding September entry as to whether or not they have been successful with their choice of school.
For late entrants i.e. all other admissions except for Sixth Form and entry into Year 7 in September, parents are advised to contact the School Admissions Officer, on 01452 713340 to check whether the school has vacancies for the relevant year and to arrange an interview and obtain an application form if there is a vacancy.
