We really pleased that you are considering making an application for a place at our new school, which is planned to open in September 2021 for 120 Year 7 pupils. The school will open temporarily in a newly reconfigured education building in Newcastle’s Graingertown while our permanent ‘state of the art’ building, on the Simonside Primary School site and adjacent land, is under construction
You can find all the information about how to apply and links to the application form, Admissions Policy and other useful information on this page.
How to apply
As the new school is not yet open, we are working in partnership with Newcastle City Council to ensure that the process runs smoothly.
If you would like to apply for a place at Callerton Academy in year 7 you will need to make a separate online application, in addition to the online application through the local authority for existing secondary schools. This ‘dual application process’ is required when a new free school is opening, as offers are conditional until the funding agreement with the Department for Education is signed.
Once the school sites and plans have been finalised, and the free school funding agreements signed, then the two applications from parents will be combined to make one application.
Keep in touch
We would very much like to keep in touch with you in the run up to opening the school in September. If you’d like to receive up to date information, new letters etc. please click here to fill in our ‘Keep in Touch’ form.
