Any queries relating to admissions to the academy should be sent to with the subject marked as "Admissions".


Admission to the Academy other than at the Normal Age of Entry (In Year Admission):

This application form is for completion by parents who have recently moved into The de Ferrers Academy catchment area or any other parent who can fulfil the admission criteria and wishes to complete an in-year transfer to The de Ferrers Academy

Decisions regarding any in year applications made will be communicated to parents / carers within 15 school days. Parents should be aware that if their application is unsuccessful, they have the right of appeal to an independent appeal panel. Further details of this process are available at


During your child's time with us, we will communicate regularly with parents/carers, using email and text messages. For this system to be successful, it is necessary for the academy to use the email address and mobile number that we hold for the priority 1 contact in our database. I would therefore be grateful if you could ensure that the priority 1 contact is a parent who has parental responsibility, and that an email address and mobile telephone number are provided where possible.

TES and SIMS will store contact information for parents/carers and students on behalf of the academy, in accordance with the UK Data Protection Act. This data will not be shared with any other party and the data is only made available for use by us for the purposes of electronic communication.
