How to apply
Houlton School is a ‘Free School’, which means that we are an independent academy, not controlled by the Local Authority. We belong to the Transforming Lives Educational Trust (TLET) and our funding comes directly from central government. Therefore, whilst our pupils enjoy enhanced, state-of-the-art facilities, there are no fees to pay for parents/carers to access our provision. Our admissions criteria, including what happens when we are oversubscribed, are contained within our Admissions Policy for the relevant year of entry.
We coordinate with Warwickshire Admissions Service in order to avoid confusion and uncertainty for families who may also be applying to Warwickshire LA schools. Therefore, all applications should be made through your home Local Authority Admissions Service. Applications for a place in Year 7 in September 2024 should be made by the national deadline of 31 October 2023. We are currently oversubscribed in all other year groups, but in-year applications for other cohorts can be made at any time and you will be able to join our waiting lists.
