Proposed Admissions Arrangements for 2025-26


New Bradwell is an academy school and, as such, is its own admissions authority. The local academy committee will operate a single point of entry at the beginning of the academic year (1st September) in which the child reaches their fifth birthday. Entry in September 2024 is therefore open to all children born between 1st September 2019 and 31st August 2020.

The school works in conjunction with the local authority and details of the co-ordinated scheme for admissions are available in the authority’s booklet, that is available from the school.  The booklet also explains how parents can express a preference for a school and give reasons for that preference.  Applications for entry to New Bradwell School in September 2024 must be on the LA’s admission form and returned to the LA by the deadline.  Alternatively, you can apply online via the link below:
