Northampton Primary Academy Trust welcomes children to join schools in our Trust both at the start of their school life (the academic year during which they turn five years old) and as a transfer from another school either at the beginning of an academic year or at any point during an academic year.

Pupils with an EHC Plan will be allocated a place where the school is named as being the appropriate provision.  For information on our Woodlands specialist provision please see here.

Applications open on 8th September 2023 and close at midnight on 15th January 2024 for children who will turn five from
1st September 2024 – 31st August 2025.

National offer day for these children will be 16th April 2024.
