Admission Criteria

The Academy will consider all applications for places without reference to the order in which the school is expressed as a preference. Where the Academy receives fewer applications/preferences than the admission number it will offer places to all those applicants. Where more applications are received than the admission number, the Academy will use the same admission criteria as that for community schools to rank applications. Please note, completion of the Bolton Council application form is necessary to apply for a place (*there is no additional form required for Kearsley Academy.)

Understandably the change from primary to secondary is a time of excitement and challenge, but also a time of concern for both students and parents. We aim to make the transition from Primary school as seamless and comfortable as possible and our priority is that new students settle in quickly and are able to take full part in the Academy community.
More information for parents can be found in the primary zone
