Prudhoe West Academy is a non-selective school for the local community. As such, the admissions policy reflects the locally co-ordinated admissions scheme. After admitting students with a statement of SEN, followed by ‘Looked After’ children, the admissions policy for the Academy prioritises brothers and sisters of children at the school and those living closest to the Academy. Our admissions policy is available below.
Please note: the allocation of a Nursery place DOES NOT guarantee a Reception place and parents must still follow the admissions process detailed below.
Admissions for Nursery are handled by the school.
Application Forms are available from the school or from the Form Downloads section of the website. This should be completed and returned directly to the school in paper format.
Usually children are admitted to Nursery the September after their third birthday. Application forms are accepted from birth.
The policy for allocation of places is available from the school by request.
Reception and Transfers
Admissions for Reception, and transfers from other schools, are co-ordinated by the local authority.
Your child will start in Reception the September after their fourth birthday. Parents should apply for a Reception place in the Autumn Term (approximately October) prior to this.
Details of how to apply can be found here
Prudhoe West Academy is part of Wise Academies. In addition to a Local Governing Body, a Board of Directors oversees the work of the Academy, and takes a close interest in its performance and provision. Further details can be found here .
