UPDATE to BWT Admissions Policy

Proposed changes due to Covid-19

BWT proposed change to school admissions policies due to Covid-19

The Brooke Weston Trust is proposing a variation to its September 2021 admissions policies for Brooke Weston Academy, Corby Business Academy, Corby Technical School, and Kettering Science Academy.
Usually these secondary schools use the Fair Banding assessment to decide their admissions and require children to complete a non-verbal reasoning test. This year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are unfortunately unable to hold this large assessment event and are proposing not to use Fair Banding as part of our admissions arrangements for the schools listed above.

The local authority will coordinate our admissions process for us as usual, but the priority for admission will be determined solely by the implementation of the oversubscription criteria set out within the relevant policies which can be found here.

If you would like to comment on this change, please do so through this linkbefore 5pm on 19th October 2020. We hope you can understand our reasons for wanting to make this change and will support us in this decision.

If you have any questions, please email
