Academy Growth - Sure Sign of Success

November marks the time of year when parents of Year 6 children must apply for a place at their chosen secondary school.

A measure of a school's success is often in the numbers of parents that express a desire to send their child to it. Whilst the official figures will not be confirmed until the end of the month, initial statistics indicate that Kirk Balk Academy will admit many more students into Year 7 than ever before and marks the fact that we will be truly over-subscribed.

Mr Buckley commented that "we're delighted that the number of parents who are confident in naming us as their first-choice preference is set to increase and indeed that we will be truly over-subscribed. We will always do everything we can to offer a place to any child who wants one, particularly if they are local. Our aim has always been to be the local preferred choice for families and both Ms Nolan and I are incredibly proud that we appear to be realising this ambition"
