Our admissions policy is similar to that of other local schools. However, there is no 'catchment'. If the school becomes over-subscribed then admissions will be decided on distance from the school. 

If your child is already at secondary school and for any reason you want to change school during the year, there may be places available at the Academy. The process is as follows:

Regardless of the county where the student is currently at school, you will need to complete a Devon Admissions In-Year Admission Form (D-CAF). This can be found by clicking the link below:

Devon In-Year Admissions (D-CAF)

You should be able to complete and return by clicking the email button at the top of the form.  Alternatively you can print and forward it to the Devon Admissions Team. Copies are also available via the school office.

If you would like any advice or guidance with the forms, please do not hesitate to contact us:
