Admissions Policy (for September 2021 Onwards)
Following a consultation period (18 December 2019 to 29 January 2020) Orchard Mead Academy changed its policy for admissions arrangements for the 2021/22 academic year and subsequent years. The change to policy has reduced the school’s Planned Admissions Number (PAN) from 240 to 210.
The new policy is effective from the September 2021 year 7 intake, and can be seen here.
To apply for a place at Orchard Mead Academy, parents must submit an application via the local authority school admissions process.
