Our school provides education for children between the ages of 4 -11  in the Kettering, Barton Seagrave and Burton Latimer (and wider East Northants) area. If you are interested in joining our school, please contact the school office to arrange a tour.  This is a vital step for any prospective pupil and their family to get a true feel for the school - something that we don't believe can be replicated by reading things online or in a prospectus.

For children joining Reception, in the year before they are due to start school, parents should apply to their choice of schools. This is be done by clicking here. On this webpage you will also find helpful tips and information.  If your child turns 4 before 31st August 2021, it’s already time to apply for their primary school place.  All applications to Reception year starting September 2021 must be completed and submitted to the Local Authority by 5.00pm on 15 January 2021.  Any applications for Reception year made after this date will be deemed as late and will not be processed until the additional rounds of allocation which begin in May 2021.

How to appeal for a place at our school

If you have applied and been refused a place at our school (in any year group), you are entitled to appeal against that decision.

Appeals for PDET academies are administered by The Diocese of Peterborough Education team. For more information on the process please click here.  If you wish to appeal please contact the Appeals Administrator and ask for an appeals pack. Contact Alex Benoy at .

The pack includes some explanatory notes about the process of Admission Appeals and a Notice of Appeal form that, should you decide to proceed with an appeal, will need to be completed and returned by email if possible, but if not, to the Diocesan Office instead.
