Admissions Policy

Ark Priory Primary Academy opened in September 2013 admitting 60 Year Reception pupils and Nursery pupils. We have grown steadily since with a full cohort each year and now have pupils in Nursery through to Year 6 in September 2019.  We look forward to welcoming new pupils in September who will join our Nursery and Reception classes.

This year we were once again over subscribed for Reception places in September 2018  and following the admissions criteria offered places up to approx. 0.306 miles where ranked on distance.
