The Holgate Academy has a pupil admission number (PAN) of 240 per year group. In the event of over-subscription, after Children with a Statement of Special Needs, where the Holgate Academy is named in the Statement are admitted the following criteria will be applied, in priority order, to determine which applications will be granted:
  1. Looked after children and children that were previously looked after.
  2. Children who, at the time of admission, have a sibling attending the Holgate Academy.
  3. Children who attend a “Holgate Family” Primary School.
  4. Other children
In the event of over-subscription within any criterion, preference will normally be given to children who live nearest to the school ‘as the crow flies’ from the front gate of the pupil’s registered home address to the reception office of the main school using the Local Authority software.
Please note that proof of address may be required in the form of utility bill, driving license, council tax payment schedule, benefit letters, solicitor’s letter confirming completion of house move or signed tenancy agreement.
Waiting Lists
In each year group The Holgate Academy will operate a waiting list where in any year the academy receives more applications for places than there are places available.
