Northwold Primary School - No sky too high

Admissions & Appeals

Northwold Primary Schools 

Northwold Primary School is a large school for pupils aged 3-11, located in Hackney. Our Academy is part of the Arbor Academy Trust and caters for over 470 pupils. We are a vibrant and inclusive community, and our skilled and dedicated staff work hard to provide a wide range of educational experiences for the children in a safe and stimulating environment. Arbor Academy Trust is the overall admissions authority for the Academy with decision making delegated to the Academy’s Governing Body.

Admission Appeal Code.  An Independent Appeals Panel hears any appeals from parents whose child has not been allocated a place at Northwold Primary School, and who lodges an appeal in accordance with the procedure specified by the Local Authority.


Pupil admission number

The Academy has an admission number of 60 pupils in all year groups and 50 full time equivalent places will be available in our nursery. Places in the nursery school may be full time or organised on a part time basis (morning and afternoons). Details will be provided on the academy website and may vary from time to time. Sufficient notice of arrangements will be given prior to annual application.

The Academy will accordingly provide for the admission of 60 pupils each year if sufficient applications for entry are received. Where fewer than the published admission number(s) for the relevant year groups are received, the Academy Trust will offer places at the Academy to all those who have applied.

In order to help you to understand the admission process better, we have produced a number of documents listed below. Please read the documents carefully. We hope you will find them helpful and informative.
