Mailing list for Year 7 – September 2025

The Academy starts to accept details onto a mailing list from when children commence Year 5 at primary school. The form to register your interest can be found here.

Entry onto the mailing list is not a guarantee of a place. We will simply use the information provided for the mailing list to inform you when the supplementary form is available to complete in July 2024.

Details of our current admissions arrangements are given in the Admissions & Appeals Policy (see Downloads section below). Please note that the Policy relates only to the admission year stated on the document and is subject to change in future years.

In-year admissions (Years 7 to 11)

Dixons Kings Academy is a heavily oversubscribed school, and a vacancy is only likely to occur if we drop below the admission number, which very rarely happens.

To apply, you will need to complete an In-Year Common Application Form (ICAF) for the local authority in order to be eligible for a place if a vacancy occurs. The ICAF and more information about the process is available from the council website or you can request for a form to be sent to you by e-mailing: or by telephoning 01274 439200.

If a vacancy does occur, the Academy will look at the waiting list and children will be prioritised in accordance with the oversubscription criteria in the Admissions & Appeals policy 2023-24 (available from the Downloads section below). We send this list to the local authority, and they then allocate the place in the order of the waiting list and in line with parental preference (as specified on the ICAF).

Should you have any questions about the admissions process, please e-mail: or telephone: 01274 089910 - option 2
