Admissions to Reception Class

All children in Bradford are admitted into Reception Class in the academic year in which they are five. All children begin school in September.

In the November before your child starts school, an application pack containing an APS1 (Application) form will be available from Bradford Council. This form gives you the opportunity to name five schools you would like your child to attend, in preference order. The application form needs to be completed and returned to the authority by the beginning of January. Parents will be informed about places during the April before the children start school.

Christ Church Academy has an admission limit of 30 and all applications for admissions are dealt with by the Local Authority and not by the school. If there are more requests than places available then priority is given to children whose family is connected to a Christian Church,  then siblings of children already attending the school and finally to those children living nearest to the school. Further details about admissions can be obtained from the Local Authority (Pupil Access) on 01274 385607 or please see the link below to Bradford Local Authority Admissions Webpage which details the process for applications.
