We are delighted that you are considering applying for a place at our academy

Outwood Grange Academies Trust is the admission authority for the academy and is responsible for determining its admission arrangements. The Trust has determined that all admissions will be co-ordinated through the Local Authority’s co-ordinated admission arrangements.

Applications for places at the Academy will, therefore, need to be made in accordance with the statutory Admission Code and will be made on the Common Application Form provided and administered by the Local Authority on behalf of Outwood Grange Academies Trust.

The Authority has determined co-ordinated admission schemes as required by law for the next academic year. This means that a parent completes the Common Application Form expressing up to three preferences and the Authority liaises with schools and other local authorities on their behalf. The Local Authority will inform the parent of the outcome of their application, including the reason for the refusal and information on the appeals process if a place is refused at any of their preferred schools.

The Local Authority will communicate the outcome of individual applications to parents on the Academy’s behalf on the national offer day.

Any parent wishing to consider the academy for their child can contact the academy for an appointment with the Principal to look around.

Admission Zone Clarification

It is important to note that anyone can apply for a place at Outwood Academy Redcar, regardless of where they live. It is NOT a requirement to live in the old ‘admission zone’. Parents can apply for a place at any secondary school. It is only when that school becomes oversubscribed, that the distance from the school becomes an issue. Every parent who placed Outwood Academy Redcar as first choice received a place for their child last year, including those who live outside the admission zone.
