Q. Do I have to go to church or fill in a church form?
A. No. If we have a place then we will offer it to you. Only if we are oversubscribed does being a “regular worshipper” affect your chances of getting a place and then a 'supplementary form' will have to be completed by you and your Priest/Christian Minister.
Q. The Local Authority Admissions Office say that Central CE Academy may not have a place
A. Please check with the Academy. We can tell you if we have places or not.
Any other questions? Please contact the academy office.
