Start Year 7: September 2024
We admit up to 225 students in Year 7 each year – this is our PAN (Pupil Admission Number). If fewer than this apply, we offer a place to all applicants.
Children with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) will be admitted to the school named on their plan. These children are assigned places before the oversubscription criteria is applied.
We follow the Leeds Local Authority oversubscription criteria. This criteria has now been updated to include: “Children who were in state care outside of England and were then adopted”. We will consult on this new criteria in time for our September 2023 intake, so this criteria won’t apply for children starting at our academy in September 2022.
Leeds Local Authority may need evidence that you meet the priority criteria below.
When there are more applicants than places available
- Children in public care or fostered under an arrangement made by the local authority or children previously looked after by a Local Authority
- Pupils without an EHC plan, but who have Special Educational Needs, or with exceptional medical or mobility needs – that can only be met at Co-op Academy Priesthorpe
Children with a sibling who’ll start school at the start of the academic year and are living at the same address
Children who live in the catchment area for Priesthorpe (as defined by Leeds City Council)
Find your catchment area here – forms.leeds.gov.uk/SchoolCatchment
All other children
When there’s more children meeting these priorities than places available, we offer places based on distance. Those living closer to the school will be offered a place (when measured in a straight line)
