School Admission Appeals - Update in light of Coronavirus 


Schools closed from Friday 20th March 2020. 

Government guidance advises that all meetings involving the public and 'non-essential' contact, are postponed. 


On the basis of this and until further notice, School Admission Appeals have been postponed. 


All documentation already received will be kept on file for future reference and we will be in touch when guidance is updated and schools are able to re-open fully.


At Acklam Grange, we understand that your choice of secondary school is an extremely important decision for your child’s future. We want you to make that decision with the right information.

The Legacy Learning Trust is the Admissions Authority for the School.

These arrangements are established in accordance with Annex 1 of the Academy’s Supplemental Funding Agreement.

The Local Authority (LA), Middlesbrough Council, its LA Admissions Team will co-ordinate all admissions and this is referred to as the coordinated admissions scheme.

All Year 7 admissions will be requested via the LA common admissions form.
