All Academies' admissions arrangements are consistent with the School Admissions Code of Practice.

The Academy’s Admissions Policy reflects the fact that the Academy will be an inclusive school that brings together families from all backgrounds, and makes an important contribution to community cohesion. It will aim to serve the whole community and will be committed to bringing people together from different cultural, religious and social backgrounds.

If your child currently attends secondary school or if your child is transferring from primary school to secondary school, to apply to Padgate Academy, you should follow the same procedures as applying for any other state funded school, through the local authority.  

Please note that all admission enquiries and applications must be made via Warrington Borough Council and not the Academy directly.
