Applying for a place during the school year (In-Year Applications)

To apply for a place at Hunts Grove Primary Academy other than at the specified dates of entry, parents should contact the school to obtain the In-Year Admission Form. The In-Year Admission Form should be completed and returned directly to the school together with proof of address and a copy of your child(ren)'s birth certificate or passport. 

Where there are more applicants than places available, the school will maintain a waiting list according to the oversubscription criteria detailed in the school's admission arrangements without regard to the date the application was received or when a child's name was added to the waiting list. 

Positions on waiting lists may go down as well as up. This is because other children might be added to the waiting list who have a greater priority for a place against the school's admission criteria; for example, when new families move into the area or when other familities who had not previously named Hunts Grove as a preference, ask to go on the waiting list after the initial allocations date.
