Stockport Academy offers free education for 1,150 students (900 places for students aged 11-16 plus a Sixth Form for 250 students). Our current intake at Year 7 is 180 and Year 12 (Sixth Form) is 125. Every place is free of charge and open to students of all abilities.
The academy admissions policy places emphasis upon family values and equality. Children with siblings at the academy are guaranteed a place, followed by other children based on distance between their home and the academy. There is no selection by either ability or aptitude for the specialism (Science).
The only students who would merit absolute priority are children in public care (looked after children), those with a Statement of Special Educational Needs (SEN) naming Stockport Academy and children for whom it is essential they be admitted because of special circumstances relating to medical and social needs.
Year 7 admissions are dealt with by Stockport MBC Admissions Team, you can find out further details about the admissions process and how to apply by visiting their website here.
Like everyone, we at Stockport Academy recognise the financial challenges facing many families in the current times. As your children move from Year 6 in primary school to Year 7 in secondary school the cost of buying new uniform can be a worry and we are keen to ease this burden for all families choosing to join our Academy. Our Chair of Governors has agreed therefore that Stockport Academy will offer parents a voucher that they can hand in at our uniform suppliers. The voucher will fund a blazer, two jumpers, a tie, PE top, PE skirt/shorts, and PE tracksuit. We have made this agreement with our suppliers for the next 3 years. Details on how this will work will be communicated to you on the New Parents' Intake Evening in June 2013.
If you are seeking admission to our Sixth Form, please visit the Sixth Form area of our website for further details about how to apply.
