Waiting List


Parents/carers wishing to ensure their child secures a place at Babington Academy should identify us as their first choice. However, if a child’s name goes onto our waiting list, the criteria allocation below is used.

The priority order for places in Year 7 and Mid-term transfers will be in accordance with the LEA criteria for allocation of school places:

This is as follows:

  1. Children who are in the care of the Local Authority
  2. Children who are “on the list of children subject to Child Protection Plans”  and need to attend an alternativeschool to avoid the abuser
  3. Children who live in the priority(formerly catchment) area for the Academy
  4. Children who have a sibling (brother or sister) who will be attending the same school in years 7-10 from the proposed time of entry
  5. Children living in the area of a closed school whose parents name one of the linked schools to that area. (See linked area below)
  6. Children of parents/carers fleeing ‘domestic violence’
  7. Other children


Some addresses in the city lie within a “linked area” A linked area is an area which was previously served by a school which has since closed. If you live in a linked area you will have priority at more than one school. These schools will be listed in the letter sent out to you by the Admissions Service.

Booking an Appointment


Once parents/carers have been informed by the Education Department that their child has been offered a place at Babington they are advised to contact the college to arrange an appointment to discuss a starting date and any information relating to the child.

  Parent/carers wishing to visit the Academy can contact our reception on 0116 222 1616.
