Spencer Academies Trust schools are typically over-subscribed, but individual academies may have places available, including for in-year admissions.
Spencer Trust academies observe local authority admissions protocols, with priority given to children from feeder schools and increasingly, from partners within our broader family of schools. Our focus is on opportunity, and where possible, we will seek to accommodate children with special educational needs or additional support requirements.
Above all, we are non-selective. The Spencer Academies Trust is constituted to support aspiration and to provide opportunities for children from all backgrounds, and of mixed ability levels.
To register your interest in a place at George Spencer Academy, or for another school with The Spencer Academies Trust group, please fill out the form here. Following receipt of your registration of interest, school staff will be in touch with you and may arrange a visit if this is required.
Admissions at GSA
Unfortunately the coronavirus outbreak has impacted on the ability of schools and panels to carry out admission appeals in the usual way and therefore there will be some unavoidable delays to the commencement to the appeals being held across the country. However, as parents must continue to have the right to appeal to any school which has refused their child a place, the Government announced regulatory changes on the 24th April 2020 to the Admissions Appeals Code which will enable hearings to take place, although it is unlikely these will be in person due to social distancing requirements.
Your appeal has been forwarded and acknowledged by the Independent Clerk, who will no doubt be planning again for the commencement of the appeal hearings. He will be in touch with you as soon as possible once a date has been agreed for the hearing to take place. We do fully recognise the frustration this may cause but these are unprecedented times and trust you fully understand this.
Any appeal request should be made in writing to The Admissions Officer, George Spencer Academy, Arthur Mee Road, Stapleford, Nottingham NG9 7EW or email firstname.lastname@example.org
