The Dean Trust Wigan is responsible for determining the Academy’s Admission Policy. In undertaking this responsibility, the Trust will be guided by the requirements of the law and will conform fully to the admissions code, The admissions oversubscription criteria have been created so as to ensure fairness, transparency and ease of operation to minimise appeals.

In accordance with the1996 Education Act the allocation of school places for children with a statement of special educational needs which names the Academy will take place first. We will then allocate the remaining places in accordance with this policy.
