The school's governing body is the admission authority for Foundation and Voluntary Aided schools, whilst the admission authority for Academies, Free schools and UTCs is their Academy Trust.

The determined admission arrangements for these schools, for which West Northamptonshire Council is not the admission authority, can be found on the schools' own websites.

West Northamptonshire's coordinated admission schemes for 2022 intakes

All local authorities must publish a scheme to coordinate admission arrangements for schools within their area. This applies to all schools, regardless of who their admission authority is. See details of West Northamptonshire's coordinated schemes for 2022:
