Prince William School is a secondary school serving students in years 7 - 13. We serve a large rural catchment area and our students are usually drawn from our feeder primary schools located in Oundle, Thrapston and our surrounding local villages.
The school's admissions process is governed by our multi-academy Trust, East Midlands Academy Trust. The admissionspolicy can be found below:
Any parents who are 'out of area' and are interested in pursuing admission to Prince William School are asked to contact the school in the first instance. Parents are then required to apply on-line as above. In-Year requests will be managed in a similar manner.
The criteria for the allocation of places is as follows:
Places will be allocated to pupils who have an EHC plan that names the school as appropriate provision.
When there are more applications for places than there are places available, priority will be given in the following order:
- To children in public care (Looked After Children) or previously in public care (Previously Looked After Children).
- To children who have an older brother or sister continuing at the school at the time of transfer.
