Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

How to Apply

We are delighted that you are thinking of applying for a place to join the Parkwood family!

The relationship that we have with you – the parents and carers of our pupils – is extremely important to us
because it is only by working together as a team that your children can achieve their social and educational potential, become good citizens and lead happy and rewarding lives when they leave the Academy. We understand that as parents and carers, nothing is more important to you than ensuring that your children have the best chance in life, so that you can be proud of them. That’s why keeping your children safe and continually stimulated to learn is our top priority. We all want to be proud of your children.

With our inclusive ethos, and family-feel, we know that your child will feel right at home when they join our school. Our transition process is designed to welcome young ones in at a pace that works for them, and that they may see our academy and meet their teachers as early as possible before the September start. We can't wait to meet you!

How to make Primary Applications

All applications can be made through the NELincs council website. Deadlines and admissions arrangements are also published on their website. 

We look forward to welcoming you into our family!
