Thank you for considering Kings Priory School as the school of choice for your son or daughter.

Kings Priory School is a popular and growing all-through Academy and we are delighted that it has become such a popular choice for many parents.

Applying to Kings Priory School

The school’s main points of admission are Reception, Year 7 and Year 12.

Applications for places for Reception and Year 7 should be made using the North Tyneside Council common application process which is available on the Council's website. There is no separate application form for Kings Priory School for these year groups.

Information on admissions policy and oversubscription criteria is available here.

Applications for places in Year 12 should be made on a form available from the School. The Sixth Form application form is available to download on the right hand side of this page.

Admission to year groups other than those relating to the age groups to which children will normally be admitted depends on spaces becoming available in those year groups (e.g. when a current family relocates to another area).

Registration forms may be downloaded from this page also and posted or handed in to our main offices on Huntington Place or Percy Park Road.

Please note that completion of a Registration form is simply an expression of interest and does not guarantee a place at the school.

Waiting Lists

The School will operate a waiting list for each year group. Where in any year, the School receives more applications for places than there are places available, a waiting list will operate until the end of the academic year.

This will be maintained by the Woodard Academies Trust and it will be open to any parent to ask for his or her child’s name to be placed on the waiting list following an unsuccessful application.

Where places become vacant, they will be allocated to children on the waiting list in accordance with the oversubscription criteria. The application of the oversubscription criteria takes place when the vacancy arises and does not take account of how long a child has been on the waiting list.

The “Admission to Reception” criteria will apply to the year groups of Reception to Year 6, the “Admission to Year 7” criteria will apply to the year groups of Year 7 to Year 11, and the “Admission to Year 12” criteria will apply to the year groups of Year 12 and Year 13.
