Year 7 Admissions

Thank you for expressing an interest in our Academy for your child to join us in September 2021. In 2017 we were delighted for Ofsted to have judged that ‘the school continues to be a good school’ where the students ‘clearly enjoy and very importantly value their education.’  We hope that our next inspection will confirm the momentum we have, to be designated as an outstanding school.

We would like to extend a warm invitation to our Virtual Open Evening on Thursday 24th September 2020 from 5.00pm. Due to the current climate, we are having to host this event virtually but our Open Evening will still offer prospective Year 7 students and parents an opportunity to find out more about the Academy, our ethos, our successes and the exciting range of opportunities and facilities that are available within the Academy.

You will be able to access the event on where you will have the opportunity to hear from the Principal, the Directors of Learning for each faculty and some of our students who will all explain what makes the Academy such a great place at which to work and learn. We will be pleased to answer your questions on all aspects of Darwen Aldridge Community Academy via email on after the event.

If you are unable to attend the Virtual Open Evening, the link will remain active and so you can view at any convenient time after the event.

Please be aware that we have previously been oversubscribed with significantly more applications than places available.  Most parents who missed out on securing places did so because they did not meet the deadline for the return of applications for places.  The deadline is 31st October 2021 and applications for places in our Academy are made through the BwD application for school places process.  Please ensure that you do not miss the deadline. It is also worth noting that historically, every application that has placed the Academy as a first preference has secured a place.

We look forward to you attending our Open Evening.  Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. In the meantime if you would like to view our prospectus you can do that here.

Thanks! Message sent.
