Dear Parents / Guardians

I am writing to you on behalf of the DNDLT Trust Board and our academy council as we are opening a consultation regarding a change to our School Admissions Policy.  The changes made are simply to ensure compliance with the School Admissions Code 2021 and also to reflect the fact that the Durham and Newcastle Diocesan Learning Trust are the admissions authority following our transfer into the Trust on 1 April 2023. 

Our Consultation opens 4th October 2023 and if you have any comments or queries on the policy or disagree with any of the proposed changes please submit these in writing to the school office or email them to The consultation period will end on 15th November 2023

A copy of the draft policy can be found below.
