From January, permanent access to the site for visitors will be via the Wolverhampton Drive entrance only. There will be 2 barriers in operation along the drive. The first barrier will be opened during peak times to allow the flow of traffic. The second barrier will remain as it is.  Outside of peak times, visitors will have to use the intercom to gain access to the site.

Admissions Consultation for September 2020

The School Admissions Code states that own admission authorities must consult on admission arrangements where changes are proposed OR every 7 years even if there has been no change.
The Rural Enterprise Academy is consulting on its admission arrangements as it has been 7 years since the Academy last consulted.
The Rural Enterprise Academy proposes adopting the same over subscription criteria as the Local Authority for 2020 admissions and will continue to use the Local Authority Coordinated Scheme for Admissions.  The closing date for applications via the coordinated process will remain as 31 January each year but late applications will still be considered if places remain available.
