Admissions for September 2022:

The Admissions Policy for Keeble Gateway Academy will be in line with the School Admissions Code, the School Admissions Appeals Code and admissions law.. Our admissions process is inclusive, open, fair and transparent. 

The published admission number is 30 places in each year of entry into Reception from September 2019. The Academy admits up to this number each year to the Reception year and when full the Academy will have 210 pupils on roll. There is a 26 place nursery in addition to this.

This applies to places when children would normally start school (the Reception Year) and to children who may join the school after this time (for example, as the result of a house move).
