Hammond Academy is consulting on the proposed admission arrangements for the school year 2022/2023. The consultation period runs from 26th October 2020 to 6th December 2020. The proposed changes are to Rule 5 – Nearest School: Children for whom it is the nearest school or academy. This includes all schools except those which allocate places on the basis of faith (membership or practice) before allocating on the basis of distance / location. The second change will be to multiple births : the school, as the admission authority will admit over the school’s published admission number when a single twin/multiple birth child is allocated a place at the school. Please see the below document for further information.

In-Year Admissions


We manage our own in-year admissions. If your child is currently in Reception to Year 6 and you would like to apply for a place at our school, please complete the In-Year Application Form and return it to us.
