We believe every student should have access to a world class education. The application process for the 2022 intake closes on 31st October 2021, however we are always happy to consider applications from new students from outside of the area, parents wishing to change schools for their children in any year group or if you have changed your mind about the school you would like your child to attend from September 2022.
The process for this varies depending on when you would like to join us, however a useful guidance document can be downloaded from Cornwall Council here.

Mounts Bay Academy is a non-selective school for pupils aged 11-16 year. Applications for places at the Academy are to be made under the Cornwall Local Education Authority’s Coordinated Admission Agreement on a common application form provided by the Local Authority.
The Academy’s Published Admission Number (PAN) is 200 for Years 8 to 11 and 210 for Year 7. Where applications exceed the number of places available, the over subscription criteria set out below will be used in order of priority to determine admissions:
In the event of two or more children having equal priority from the above criteria, the child living closer to the Academy will have greater priority.
In addition to the right of appeal, unsuccessful candidates will be offered the opportunity to be placed on a Waiting List, which will be maintained by the Academy in order of the over-subscription criteria.
Cornwall Local Authority’s In Year Fair Access Protocol will take precedence over any child already on the Waiting Lists.
The Academy will carefully consider exceptional requests where appropriate, and together with the LA, will make a decision based on the particular circumstances of each case.
In the event of a place being available in the appropriate year group an offer of a place at the Academy will be made. If no places are available the child will be refused a place at the Academy.
Parents of children who are refused a place at the Academy will be notified of their right of appeal and will receive advice from the LA regarding alternative schools.
All parents who are refused a place for their child will be advise of their rights of appeal to an independent panel. The Local Authority, on behalf of the Academy’s governing body, will administer such appeals.
