General Admissions

To see if places are available at the Academy, parents/carers must contact the Local Authority (LA).  If there is availability, you will be required to complete a Transfer Form (available from your current school) and send direct to the Local Authority.  Parents/carers will be contacted direct from the LA, not The Bourne Academy.  As soon as the Academy has had confirmation from the LA, we will contact you to come in for a meeting with your child’s Head of House and a tour of the Academy.

If there are no places available, please enquire about putting your child's name on the waiting list.
