George Spencer Academy observes local authority admissions protocols, with priority given to children with special educational needs or additional support requirements; and increasingly, from within the broader Spencer family of schools.

In addition to welcoming children from the broader Spencer family of schools, George Spencer Academy particularly welcomes children from the local area, even if they don’t currently attend one of the named family of schools. Local applicants in this position often find they successfully secure a place on this basis.

Information on applying for a place through the Nottinghamshire County Council’s Coordinated Admissions Scheme is available here.

A copy of the school Admissions Policies can be found below.

The Admissions Policy includes detailed information on the applications process; the special consideration given to applications on behalf of children with special education needs and support requirements; and the criteria used when the school is over-subscribed.

Parents of children in Year 6 will receive a letter from the Local Authority inviting them to apply for a place at their preferred secondary school in early September.

To register interest in a place to join George Spencer as an in year admission, contact the Principal’s office here.
