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.

Site Access – update 22/11/18

There is still restricted access to the site and, as yet, no date has been set to fully open all access routes so this will remain the case for the foreseeable future. 

There is no access to the Academy from Rodbaston Drive (first turning off the main road coming from Penkridge) so students must be dropped off, or collected, from the car parks accessed from Wolverhampton Drive (second turning off the main road coming from Penkridge).

In spite of this closure, some parents/carers are still using Rodbaston Drive as a drop off/pick-up point, which is causing congestion and disruption for the residents on Rodbaston Drive. Please adhere to the requests made and only use Wolverhampton Drive to access the site.

It appears the left turn only exit has eased congestion, especially at the end of the day, so this restriction will remain in place.
Thank you, once again, for your cooperation and patience.
