Information about the process for school admissions can be found on the relevant Northamptonshire County Council website (click here).

Secondary Admissions Test

As explained fully in our Admissions Policy, part of the admissions oversubscription criteria to the academy is that prospective pupils sit an admissions test.

This is a verbal-reasoning, cognitive ability test and NOT a pass/fail test.

Once students have completed the test, papers are marked externally and students placed into one of nine ability bands based upon national averages.

Results are forwarded to Northamptonshire's Admissions Team who are responsible for the allocation of places.

Parents / carers are reminded that, as explained in our Admissions Policy, preference for places is given to students who sit the test over students who do not.

Academy In Action Tours

We offer prospective students and their parents the opportunity to see our academy in action. Academy In Action tours give parents and children the opportunity to experience our unique learning environment and ethos during a typical working day.

These tours are led by members of our student and senior leadership teams and last for approximately 90 minutes from arrival to departure. 

Should you wish to book a place on one of these Academy In Action tours please email enquiries@kba.uk and we will be happy to organise your visit.
