Moving from primary to secondary school is an exciting and significant event. Clarendon Academy recognises this as an important milestone and aims to make the transition as smooth and problem free as possible with a mix of open days and evenings, tours, visits to primary schools, induction days and information evenings.
‘Clarendon Academy is a well organised community with staff that take the time to care and commit to each student. Congratulations on your achievement.’
For parents and children in Years 5 and 6 the key dates are:
Open Days for all Year 5 students in the Trowbridge collaborative schools. Further appointments can be made throughout the school year.
• June and July
Open Weeks for prospective parents to view the academy in action.
Open evening for prospective parents and Year 6 students.
(we provide personal tours of the academy by appointment at all times of year. Simply call reception and ask to speak to the admissions officer who will book you a meeting with the Principal.)
Deadline for applications
The end of October is the deadline for applications for places at the school for Year 7 the following September. Applications are possible after this date but they will be treated as late admissions under the Local Authority’s agreed procedures. Students are admitted without reference to ability, aptitude or culture.
Where to apply
Applications within the normal admissions round for entry into Year 7 are made through the co-ordinated admissions system of the Local Authority in which a family lives. www.wiltshire.gov.uk/schoolseducationandlearning/
