In-Year Admissions

Manor Academy currently has limited vacancies in some of our year groups. We encourage all families to visit the school to see the excellent facilities and meet the Headteacher.

Applications for in-year places should be made directly to Manor Academy, click here to complete the application form. You will usually be advised in writing whether a place can be offered within ten school days of making your application and at the very latest within fifteen school days.

As part of our duty of care we will then be in touch with your child’s previous school to ensure that we can meet their needs. If your application is successful, you will be given a start date (usually after a half term or term). Your child will then be supported in their transition into their new school. 

When an application for a place at this academy is unsuccessful, families are able to appeal the decision by completing this Admissions Appeals Form, click here.
