Admission to Queen Elizabeth’s Academy

We welcome applications for admission to Queen Elizabeth’s Academy from students of all faiths, and none. Whilst the academy is Church of England, it is not obligatory for parents/guardians or the individual students to practise a faith or to worship regularly.

The decision of where to send your son/daughter as they move into secondary education is a very important one, and we aim to support families in making this decision. Together with our website, which contains key information, we open our doors to prospective students and their families at open evenings and events throughout the year, which are advertised on our event page and through social media.

Parents and guardians can also arrange to visit the academy during term-time at a time to suit them to see the academy in action – simply call our main office on 01623 623559 and book a tour.

The application process

Nottinghamshire County Council continues to administer the admissions process for Queen Elizabeth’s Academy and entry is still based upon the admissions criteria.
