Oversubscription criteria

Places will be allocated to pupils who have a statement of special educational needs or EHC Plan that names Rushden Academy as appropriate provision. When there are more applications for places than there are places available, priority will be given in the following order:

  1. Children in public care (looked after children) or previously in public care.
  2. Pupils who live within the designated area (i.e. Newton Bromswold, Knuston Hall, Higham Ferrers and Rushden) and who will have an older brother or sister continuing at the Academy at the time of transfer of the younger child.
  3. Pupils who live within the designated area and who live closer to Rushden Academy than any other school.
  4. Pupils who live within the designated area.
  5. Pupils who live outside the designated area and who will have an older brother or sister continuing at the Academy at the time of transfer of the younger child.
  6. Pupils who live outside the designated area.

Distance tiebreaker

If the admission number is exceeded within criterion (2) or (3), priority will be given to those who live furthest from the nearest alternative school. If the admission number is exceeded within any other criterion, priority will be given to those who live closest to the school with distances measured using the NCC’s GIS system.
