We recognise that parents and carers will have many questions at this stage of their child's academic career. If you have any queries about admissions to the academy please contact our Admissions Officer on 020 7275 1508 or email admissions@petcheyacademy.org.uk


Open Days - Year 6 into 7

Our Y6 Open Evening evening is on Monday 23rd September 2019 for students and parents/carers wishing to join us in September 2020.

The Petchey Academy will consider all applications for places. Each year the academy is over subscribed but all Hackney residents and some Islington residents have an equal and fair chance of a place and a waiting list system is adopted for those that would still like to be considered for a place after initial allocation. Parents must apply by the end of October each year via the Hackney Learning Trust website.  

Mid Year Admissions

Any student interested in joining the academy mid way through the year must apply via the Hackney Learning Trust website here.

Applications to Sixth Form

We welcome applications to our Sixth Form from students all over Hackney and the surrounding boroughs. Please visit our Sixth Form pages for more information.

Operation of Waiting List

Subject to any provisions regarding waiting lists in The Learning Trust's co-ordinated admission scheme, the academy will operate a waiting list. Children’s position on the waiting list will be determined solely in accordance with the oversubscription criteria set out in our Admissions Policy. Where places become vacant they will be allocated to children on the waiting list in accordance with the oversubscription criteria and their CATS band score.
