Admissions for school places starting in September 2024 are now open and close on Tuesday 31 October 2023.

When you can join our schools

You can apply to join our middle schools at Year 5 if your child is currently in a first school.

Even if your child attends a primary school outside the Seaton Valley Partnership, you can still apply to join our middle schools at Year 7 instead of transferring to a secondary school.

We accept applications for children in middle or secondary schools to start at ACHS in Year 9.

Admissions arrangements

We follow the admissions arrangements of Northumberland County Council.

You can find out more about the admissions arrangements from Northumberland County Council's website or by contacting the Admissions Team on email:

Parents and Carers are entitled to express a preference about which school their child should attend. Please contact us to make an appointment to view our schools during the school day.
