Mid Year Admissions
When you are moving house to the Deepings area, or another area of Lincolnshire, you are encouraged to approach the school to enquire about arranging a place for your child.
You should contact the Admissions Manager to arrange an appointment to visit and find out if the school has any places available.
If you would like to apply for a place at our school, you should complete an online mid-year application form:
If you do not currently live in Lincolnshire, you should apply through the local Authority where you live. Your County Council will pass the application onto Lincolnshire County Council.
If you are unable to access the online application form, paper forms can be requested from Lincolnshire County Council School Admissions Team on 01522 782030.
The Deepings School is popular some year groups may have a waiting list. If this is the case, you will be asked for some details so that you can be added to the list and you will be required to keep the Admissions Manager informed as your circumstances change. Should a place become available, then the place will be allocated in line with the admission procedure as laid down in the school's admission policy. It is important that you understand that your place on the waiting list may change, e.g. If other families move into the area and live nearer to the school than you.
You should be aware that:
- Places that are available when you first enquire may be taken up before you move in.
- Places will not be offered until you have made a legal commitment to move.
- Places can only be held for a limited time.
- When moving into an area, never assume that there will automatically be a place for your child in the nearest school or your preferred school. Always make enquires in advance.
The Schools Admissions Code makes it clear that there is no obligation to maintain reserve lists for mid-year admissions. The Deepings School and its Governors have decided that the academy should maintain a reserve list for years 7 to 9. Any students on the waiting list for year 10 will be removed on 30 September each year and notification of this will be sent by post. There are no reserve lists for years 10 and 11.
If you have any problems in getting a place for your child, you should contact the Education Team on 01522 782030 or E-mail:
When moving into an area, never assume that there will automatically be a place for your child in the nearest school or your preferred school. Always make enquires in advance.
