Visiting our Academy

Prospective parents are welcome to visit our Academy by appointment, or on specific open days that are held throughout the academic year.

Open Days are geared to signpost all families, especially  those who predominately Home Educate, to the learning opportunities available here at Hollinsclough.

Alongside regular school attendance, we will also consider applications for Flexi-schooling. Flexi-schooling is an option that we will consider, however parents will need to be aware that it granted at the sole discretion of our Principal, even when there are other children in the same family.

Our approach to education is very popular and for the most part we can become oversubscribed very quickly, but please don’t let this deter you from applying.

Please see the table below for availability and call if needed where indicated. We strongly advise that you register your interest as early as possible

All applications are subject to our Admissions policy (this also includes applications for a Flexi-schooling). Parents should note that our Principal will only permit Flexi-schooling if she alone determines that it is in the interests of the individual child.

On occasion due to the popularity of our academy, we will operate a waiting list. You will be informed if a waiting list is in place at the time of your initial contact, or subsequent visit to our academy. On occasion this waiting list can be year group specific. Please don’t let this prevent your application.
