Admission arrangements for children starting school
Admissions for children about to start school is decided through implementation of the Governors’ previously determined published arrangements and over-subscription criteria. The process is co-ordinated by Nottinghamshire County Council’s Admissions Office.
The published admission number for Reception is 30.
Parents/carers are required to apply on a common application form through their ‘home’ local authority: the local authority under which they live. All information on school applications is available at the below contacts:

Admission over-subscription criteria
In the event of over-subscription, the following criteria will be applied, in priority order, to determine which applications will be granted once places have first been allocated to pupils who have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) which names the school:
1. Children looked after by a local authority (LAC) and previously looked after children (PLAC), including children outside of England (IAPLAC).
2. Children who live in the catchment area* and who, at the time of admission, will have a brother or sister attending the school.
3. Other children who live in the catchment area* at the closing date for applications.
4. Children who live outside the catchment area* and who, at the time of admission, will have a brother or sister attending the school.
5. Children who live outside the catchment area*.
*NB: Catchment areas can be viewed and checked using the following county council website:
In the event of oversubscription and applications being refused, applicants have the right to an independent appeal.
As an academy, our appeals arrangements are handled directly by the school as part of The Flying High Trust. All appeals received by the school are handled by an independent appeals clerk who will make all the necessary arrangements to ensure all appeals are compliant with statutory guidelines.
Applicants wishing to make an appeal should do so within 28 days of the date of the letter notifying you of the decision to refuse admission to the school. An appeals form should be completed in every case and submitted to The Flying High Trust within the 28 days. The form is available on the school’s website https://www.horsendale.co.uk/admissions/, by contacting the school directly 0115 913 2331 or by contacting The Flying High Trust directly:
