The school follows the Local Authority policy for admissions for 11-16 students. For further information on Secondary admissions in Tameside, please visit the Tameside Council website, where you will find links to useful information, including the appeals process.

Each year the school arranges an Open Evening for prospective students and their parents/carers.

Once we know which students are due to attend there are a series of events and meetings from May onwards to ease the transfer from primary school. These include: a New Intake evening for parents/carers and a taster day at the school when students will sample a range of lessons with the tutor group to which they will belong in September. In addition key staff visit the main primary schools to discuss transfer information with appropriate teachers.
