You must apply on the Common Admissions Form supplied to you by your local LEA.
It is obviously important that you name, at the top of the list, the school which is your first preference. If you really want your son or daughter to come to Macmillan Academy you should write that name at the top of the form. The form should be returned directly to the LEA in the pre-paid envelope which came with it or apply on line as instructed by the LEA.
Students who name Macmillan Academy will be invited for a test as part of the national process of ‘fair-banding’. This is not a pass or fail test. It simply ensures that children across the full range of ability are admitted to Macmillan.
The order in which places are given at the Academy are clearly detailed in the guide for parents – ‘Primary and Secondary Education in Middlesbrough’.
As specialisms are no longer central to the education system the academy will not use a specialism in outdoor education as a method of securing entry into the academy.
For September 2016/17 our Year 7 students on roll is 240
