Axe Valley Academy welcomes applications for admission from parents of children who live in our catchment area and those who live outside, including across the border in Dorset or Somerset. For admissions at the beginning of Year 7, information about the process to transfer from primary school will be sent to parents/carers at the beginning of the September term of Year 6. We have an open evening / day during the autumn term so that parents and children can come and see what we have to offer. Applications to come to us are made to your home Local Authority. For Devon residents, that is through Devon Local Authority School Admissions (t: 0345 155 1019). The closing date is the same across the country: 31 October each year and offers are made by the Local Authority on 1 March.
Applications for admission after this, called In Year Admissions can be made through Devon Local Authority School Admissions. The named contact for admissions enquiries at the Academy is Jon Scott, Assistant Headteacher.
Whenever an application is made, the responsibility for decisions rests with the academy trust which also sets the admissions policy itself. We have an admissions policy for each academic year and intend to put our policy to public consultation annually. We do this through Devon County Council with information posted on this page and also at www.devon.gov.uk/admissionarrangements in November and December.
