Admissions process

We are planning to open with 120 year 7 students in September 2021.

Although we are working closely with Rochdale Borough Council, for 2021 admissions only, applications should be made directly to the school.

Those who were not offered a year 7 place on 1st March have been invited to join the waiting list. Offers from Edgar Wood Academy are made in addition to the usual local authority practice and it is normal practice in the majority of schools (and we expect this to be the case at Edgar Wood Academy) that some places offered will eventually be declined. It is therefore likely that some of those on the waiting list will eventually be offered places at Edgar Wood Academy.

Parents who have not yet applied for a place at Edgar Wood Academy and wish to add their child to the waiting list for a year 7 place for 2021 are asked to complete the short online application form.

From September 2022, we will welcome 180 students into all further year groups.
