This is required in addition to submission of the Common Preference Form.
  • Exceptional medical or social need criterion, you will also need to complete the Exceptional Need Supplementary Form (available in the Downloads section below) and submit this and the supporting evidence, directly to the Academy. This is required in addition to submission of the Common Preference Form.
  • Children of staff criterion, you will also need to send a letter or e-mail to the Governing Body of the Academy, sent via the Admissions Officer at the Academy, stating the name, post, and length of service of the member of staff and the child’s name and date of birth.​ This is required in addition to submission of the Common Preference Form.

In-year admissions

Dixons Trinity Chapeltown is an oversubscribed school and, consequently, a vacancy is only likely to occur if a child leaves the year group.

If a vacancy does occur, the Academy will look at the waiting list and children will be prioritised in accordance with the oversubscription criteria (see Admissions & Appeals Policy 2023-24 in the Downloads section below). The local authority will then allocate the place in the order of the waiting list and in line with parental preference (as specified on the application).

If you would like to transfer your child to the Academy, you should complete an In-year common preference form. You can do this by visiting the local authority website and logging into the parent portal (or register if you don't already have an account).
