General Admissions Arrangements 

Our linked area includes the villages of Braunston, Onley and Onley Park. We also have a significant number of children who live in Daventry and attend Braunston School.

The Academy Governance Committee (AGC) have delegated responsibility for admissions in our school and are therefore responsible for all admissions.  Places are allocated according to our Admissions Policy which you will find in the key files in the sidebar.

Applications for all year groups must be made via West Northamptonshire Council Admissions Team (Key Weblinks in the sidebar).

Admission to the Reception Class

Children are able to start at Braunston School in the September following their 4th birthday. We have good links with Braunston Pre-School, allowing a smooth transition from pre-school to the reception class and also have children joining us from other nurseries and pre-schools. Applications for reception can be made in the autumn term. The deadline is 15th January

Applications must be made through the local authority where you live.If you live in Northamptonshire, to apply you will need to complete a West Northamptonshire Council form. Please follow the link to WNC in the Key Weblinks in the sidebar.

Admission to any year group during the school year (known as in-year applications)

We are part of the West Northamptonshire Council in year scheme, which means applications must be made via the local authority rather than directly to the school. You can do this online here

Vision & Ethos

The school has taken part in a major research project looking at effective ways for developing character education opportunities in schools.
