Status of the school

Watling Academy is an Academy within the Denbigh Alliance Multi-Academy Trust and, as such, is its own admissions authority. It is the Governing Body of the School that determines the admission criteria and operates the admission process. Parents should note that for Milton Keynes’ Secondary Schools including Academies there is no automatic right to a place at the ‘defined area’ School. It is essential that application forms are completed and returned by the deadline date. If you make an application for a school that is not your local School and subsequently are not allocated a place, there is no guarantee that secondary education will be available for your child at the defined area School/Academy.

Applying to Watling Academy

Milton Keynes Council (MKC) coordinate ALL applications for the normal Year 7 admissions round (starting in September). For more information please visit the Milton Keynes Council website:
