New Year 7 admissions for September intakes
All new Year 7 admissions are dealt with by the Lincolnshire County Council Admissions team. Lincolnshire children who attend a Local Authority Primary school will be given a booklet in September of their Year 6 to take home which explains the process.  Up to 2 March all enquiries should be made to the Admissions team at Lincolnshire County Council. After 2 March enquiries can be direct to the school.  Further information regarding this process can be found on and the Bourne Academy Admissions Policy  

In-Year Admissions
Bourne Academy is usually oversubscribed so early discussion is essential. Please contact us directly regarding school place availability, applications to be made via Lincolnshire County Council.  If there is a vacancy in the Year Group, then a place will be allocated.  If we do not have a place in the Year Group, applicants will be placed on the waiting list according to the admission criteria that is met and the procedure for Appeal will be explained.  Please see the Bourne Academy Admissions Policy for further reference.
Admission Appeals
Appeal forms can be obtained from the Education team at Lincolnshire County Council.  Appeals are held within the statutory timescale and you will be advised of an appeal hearing date once your application is received.  Further information can be found using the link below.
