Applications for school places excluding Reception and Secondary transfer (Year 6 into Year 7) are administered by local schools directly. Download the St Mary Magdalene Academy application form here:

In-year admissions application form

The Academy will endeavour to process in-year admissions as quickly as possible. However, due to the volume of applications received on a daily basis, please expect some delay in receipt of acknowledgements.


If your child has not been offered a place at St Mary Magdalene Academy, the law entitles you to appeal against that decision to an independent appeal panel. For more information and to make an appeal, please follow these links:
