The Highcrest Academy

Admissions 2020

The Highcrest Academy became an ‘All Ability School’ in September 2013.

Pupils entering the Academy since September 2013 have been admitted following the ‘new’ Admissions Policy.

For further details please see the tabs on the left hand side. If you have any queries at all relating to Admissions please contact Mrs Weldon on 01494 529866.

There is a waiting list in all years. To apply to join a waiting list parents should complete the ‘In Year Application Form’ available on this page and return it to the Academy. In Years 10 and 11 admission priority is based on distance within a catchment area, distance out of catchment area and then siblings. Children are not admitted on the basis of who applied first. Please refer to the full policy.

Admissions Consultation 2020

The School Admissions Code requires all schools to consult on their admissions policy every seven years. 

The Highcrest Academy are currently consulting on admissions arrangements for admission in Sep 2020. Our PAN number will be 180.

We do not propose any changes to our admissions policy from the previous year.

If you have any comments regarding our admissions policy, please write to Mrs G Weldon, Senior Vice Principal, at or contact the Office of the Schools Adjudicator.

Admissions will usually occur at the start of each term.
