Our academies / schools seek to serve their local communities: they are inclusive welcoming children of the Christian Faith, of other faiths or of no faith, children from all backgrounds and of all abilities.

Peterborough Diocese Education Trust (PDET) is the admission authority for all of its academies / schools and has responsibility for setting the Admissions Policy. Each academy / school  has its own admission arrangements as part of the policy. This includes the criteria that will be applied if there are more applications than places available (the published admission number or PAN).
