The college serves the areas of Acklington, Amble, Broomhill, Hadston, Red Row, Warkworth and Widdrington. All children resident in the area are automatically entitled to a place at the college. However, parents are entitled to express a preference for a different middle or high school. This process takes place early in the autumn term of each academic year. Children resident in our area are given first choice of places in our schools but if parents from outside of the area express a preference for our schools their children will be admitted if we have vacancies in the desired year group. If the year group is over-subscribed parents can appeal to the school to have their child admitted. The college accepts all children and does not discriminate on the grounds of special educational needs, disabilities, gender, faith or ethnic group. Admissions to the school are organised by the local authority, details can be found here.

The college has excellent links with its feeder schools and this allows prospective students to visit the schools in the years before they join us and to get to know the buildings and the staff. We have transition programmes for vulnerable children and/or those with special educational needs and/or disabilities that enable students to become familiar with the schools and the staff who will teach them. Our primary teachers visit our first schools in the months before the move to middle school and we work closely with first school staff to ensure that children are in classes with their friends so that they feel confident when joining our school. Year 4 children come to the middle school for a day before they join us in the autumn term and we also run a course which allows prospective students and their parents to work on creative projects in our middle school. All our teachers work across both our school sites so our Year 8 students get to know the high school staff before transition. Students in our middle and high school wear the same uniform and follow the same policies and procedures so the move to high school is very easy.
