How to apply for a place
Year 7 Intake
When there are more applicants than places available at the Academy, the following criteria will be used to determine which children will be allocated places:
- Looked-after child (in public care)
- Children with a brother or sister already at the Academy who will still be in attendance in September
- Children who live nearest to the Academy
Within each of these categories priority is given to those who live nearest to the Academy, calculated on the basis on a straight-line measurement between home and the Academy.
There is no selection by gender, race, faith or ability
Application to the Parker Academy is by completing the Local Education Authority School Common Application on-line form. Further information can be found on the Northamptonshire County Council website.
For in-year admissions, applications must still be made through Northamptonshire County Council.
