All schools publish the guidelines that they follow when offering places to children. Our Admissions Policy below explains how decisions about admissions will be made fairly. Admissions to the Academy are based on the Published Admission Number (PAN). PAN is the maximum number of pupils that can be admitted into each year group at the Academy. This number is reviewed and agreed with Sunderland City Councils admission authority. From September 2022 our PAN number for admission into Year 7 and above will be 120.
Your child is entitled to a full time school place from the September following their fourth birthday and you can apply for them to join the academy in Reception. If your child is already in primary education, you can apply for them to come into their year group within Academy 360.
Places in Reception classes up to (and including) Year 6 have to applied for online using the common application form (available from the Local Authority). This can be accessed here. Alternatively, please contact the school directly and we will be able to help you further.
Children in our Year 6 automatically move into our Year 7. Pupils from other schools can also apply to join Academy 360. If you are applying for your child to join Academy 360 for their secondary (11-16) education, applications are made using the common application form (available from the Local Authority). This can be accessed here. Alternatively, please contact the school directly and we will be able to help you further.
We look forward to hearing from you and meeting you and your child.
