Admissions Policy

Isaac Newton Academy is a non-selective school for local children. We admit children with an education and health care plan (EHCP) where the school is named on the EHCP. Then, if the academy is oversubscribed we offer places to children in the following order of priority:

  • Looked After Children and all previously Looked After Children
  • children of staff of the school where there is a demonstrable skill shortage.
  • children who have a sibling who already attends the school and who will continue to do so on the date of admission (for this purpose “sibling” means a whole, half or step-brother or -sister resident at the same address) .
  • children of staff of the school (where there is no skill shortage).
  • the remaining places will be allocated children who live closest to the school, using a straight line distance from the main entrance of the academy to the main entrance to the child’s home. 

For full details, please see the Admissions Policy.
