Admissions

Downham Market Academy does not select pupils for admission and will consider all applications for places.

Year 7 (11+) Entry

The majority of our students join us after the end of year six, at the culmination of their primary school education, joining us at the start of year seven.

Applications for places at the academy should be made in accordance with Norfolk County Council’s admissions arrangements, referred to as the ‘transfer to secondary school admission round’. Further information and application forms can be downloaded from their transfer to secondary school page.

Our full admissions policy can be found here.

For admissions outside of the normal age range, we will consider all requests to place children outside of their normal age group including summer born and premature children in line with the requirements of paragraph 2.17 and 2.17B of the School Admissions Code.

Joining us beyond year seven

If you are relocating your family to Norfolk, or wish for your son or daughter to transfer schools for other reasons, please contact Phil Hearne, the Interim Principal of Downham Market Academy for admission information.
