At John Locke Academy we understand the admissions process can be a difficult process. We aim to have complete transparency throughout the whole admissions process. Parents are always welcome to talk to staff and all information is available from the main office. We are happy to discuss any part of the admissions process. The local authority admissions team can be contacted on 01895 556644.
Admissions for the academy follow The Elliot Foundation Academy Trust policy. There is no selection process for entry to the academy. Priority is given to children with a statement of special educational needs and looked after children if the academy is oversubscribed. Children who have siblings in school will be given next preference after which distance from the school is the deciding factor.
Please call the school office on 01895 590110 to discuss admissions. Louise Ayres is our admissions officer.
Nursery admissions 2019/20
We have 45 morning places and 45 afternoon places in the nursery. We will take children who have turned 3 by September 2019. If we still have places in January we will then take children who have turned 3 by December 31st 2019. If we are oversubscribed then the admissions statement below will be enforced.
Please contact the main office for an application form. Allocations for September intake take place in the Spring term prior to admission and allocations for January intake take place in the Autumn term. We will then arrange a visit to your home to ensure the process is as easy as possible for each child. This will be discussed with parents once the nursery place is confirmed.
Please note that admission to nursery does not secure a full time place in reception. Applications must be made to the local authority for reception places.
Reception September 2020
Applicants for Reception in September will be considered under our Determined Admissions policy 2020/21.
Applications for September 2020 will need to be made via by the deadline, 15 January 2020.

Applications must be submitted by the submission date published. Parents are responsible for ensuring that an application is made for each child even if they attend the school’s nursery or have older siblings in the school.
Although the co-ordinated admissions process is dealt with by the local authority, the Academy makes the decision on admissions according to their admissions policy.
We will be holding an Open Day on Monday 13th January 2020 at 10am to 11am, 2pm to 3pm and 6pm to 7pm.

Please arrive promptly for the presentation at the start of each session. Please contact the school office on 01895 590110 to book a place on whichever time slot is convenient for you. There will be very limited parking available on site on a first come first served basis for the evening session (6pm to 7pm). There will be no parking on site for the earlier sessions. Roads around the academy have enforced double yellow lines.
