Hardingstone Academy: admission information

Hardingstone Academy, Martins Lane, Northampton, Northamptonshire, NN4 6DJ​

 Oversubscription criteria

Where there are more applications than there are places available, the governing body will admit pupils for whom a statement of special educational needs has been issued, which names Hardingstone School as the most appropriate school in meeting the needs of the child.

Additionally, pupils will be admitted according to the following criteria, which are listed in order of priority.

  1. In the case of oversubscription, the governing body will accept applications, as a priority, for “looked after” children, or previously ‘looked after children’ but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, residence/child arrangements order or special guardianship order.
  2. The Governing Body may admit up to one pupil on social and medical grounds, where appropriate professionals have clearly identified that the school can fully meet the needs of the pupil. These applications should be accompanied by documentary evidence from appropriate professionals within the Health, or Social Care Services.
  3. For children permanently resident in Hardingstone or Wootton Hall Park, the Governing Body reserves it's entitlement to take reasonable steps to verify the accuracy and permanence of such residence.
  4. Children who have an older sibling continuing to attend Hardingstone Academy at the time of admission of the younger child.
  5. Proximity of the child's permanent residence to the school, with those living nearer to school being accorded higher priority.

Where more than one application is to be considered in any category above, applications will be prioritised according to the shortest straight line distance from the child's permanent residence to the main entrance to the school. Where necessary, this will be measured by school staff. The Governing Body reserves its entitlement to take reasonable steps to verify the accuracy and permanence of such residence.
