Admissions & Prospectus
Trinity Academy St Edward’s has an inclusive admissions policy, based on the Department for Education’s model. Trinity Academy St Edward’s will have a Church of England designation and provide an excellent education for all which is rooted in Christian values. It will, however, be fully inclusive and non-selective, welcoming pupils of all abilities, faiths or no faith and from all backgrounds who live locally. This reflects the Trust’s commitment to inclusiveness, serving the local community and providing a rich, inspiring and respectful education for all in a nurturing environment which reflects Christian values but is in no way restricted to those of faith.
Our current secondary academies Trinity Academy Halifax, Trinity Academy Grammar and Trinity Academy Cathedral, Trinity Academy Bradford, and Trinity Academy Leeds have very similar admissions and the cohorts attending are very diverse and inclusive. This is the same at Trinity Academy St Edward’s.
All applications must go through the Barnsley LA Admissions Process.
Fair Banding Assessment
Trinity Academy St Edward’s receives a high volume of applicants; although we would like to offer a place to every child who wants to come here, that sadly isn’t possible. We admit a set number of students per year into Year 7 and these places are awarded strictly in line with the terms of our Admissions policy (including our oversubscription criteria). This can be accessed here.
Parents should register their child for the Fair Banding Assessment even if Trinity Academy St Edward’s is your second or third choice of school. This is in case you do not get your first choice of school and would still like to be considered for a place with us.
If you are interested in your child securing a place with us, please register for our Fair Banding Assessment by Friday 30th September.
