Year 7 Admissions
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.
Late applications will be considered only if there is room at the Academy.

The main purpose of prep is to reinforce and build on material taught in class. At examination times, prep will consist of revising and practising examination technique. It is therefore vital that good study habits are formed at the start of Year 7. Parents can help their children develop these by encouraging them to study at regular times and away from distractions. Parents can view the prep that has been set for their child using SIMS SLG via a personal Login available from the school.
All students are required to complete prep assignments on a regular basis. A Student Planner and prep timetable will be provided at the start of each year in order to help students to plan their time and meet deadlines, and prep tasks for each subject will be published on the Virtual Learning Environment of the school website.
In Key Stage 3, one or two subject prep tasks will be set each night whilst at Key Stage 4, this will increase to three prep tasks per evening.
Whilst the time spent on prep will differ for each student, we would expect Year 7 students to spend between 40 and 60 minutes on prep each evening. In Year 8, this will rise to about one hour, in Year 9 to about an hour and a half and to approximately two hours in Years 10 and 11. Sixth Formers should undertake a recommended 21 hours private study per week.
Please see the attached timetable for details of subjects and nights.
