Welcome to Ormiston Denes Academy admissions, where you will find an overview of entry to the academy.
Students normally join the academy in Year 7. Occasional entry is possible into other year groups, however we are oversubscribed in some areas so in-year admissions cannot be guaranteed.
Before applying, we would encourage you to contact us with a view to arranging a visit to the academy. We normally have open afternoons and evenings in both the autumn and summer term and they provide an ideal opportunity to view our wonderful facilities and to meet our students and staff.
Year 6 into Year 7 admissions
To apply for a place in the standard Year 6 into Year 7 intake please view the Information for Year 6 tab for further details.

In year admissions
To apply for a place under the in-year admissions process please complete the ADM1 2021-2022 school application form.
For in year admissions it is recommended that you also visit the academy on a normal working day, meet senior staff and discuss what the academy can offer your child. Visits are often booked up at least three weeks in advance so early enquiry is advised.
