The Ashworth Preparatory School: admissions information

​The Ashworth Preparatory School, Lodge Park Academy, Shetland Way, Corby, NN17 2JH

Oversubscription criteria

When the school is oversubscribed, after the admission of pupils with statements of Special Educational Needs where the school is named in the statement, priority for admission will be given to those children who meet the criteria set out below, in priority order:

  1. Looked after children and children who were previously looked after but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, residence, or special guardianship order.
  2. Admission of pupils whose siblings currently attend The Ashworth Preparatory School and who will continue to do so on the date of admission.
  3. Admission of other pupils, with those living nearest to the Academy being given priority.

Tiebreaker

Distance from the child’s permanent home address to the main entrance of the Preparatory School will be used as a tiebreaker to determine which children are admitted. Those children living nearest to the Preparatory School will be given preference. The distance will be measured by a straight line on a map from address point of the child’s home to the address point of the school using the LA’s measuring systems. If two or more children live the same distance from the Preparatory School and there is only one place available, random allocation will be used to decide which child is admitted.

Definitions

Child’s home address

The permanent home address of the parent at the time of application. Proof of residence can be asked for at any time during the admissions process. This will normally be in the form of a recent council tax bill or a utility bill less than 3 months old.

Siblings

Children who are brothers and sisters of, or who live as a family at the same address as, pupils who are already at the school or who have already been offered a place, and who will still be there at the time of admission.
