Join Our Academy - Secondary

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the Headteacher of the secondary phase of The Priory Witham and explain a little more about the Academy and what we offer.

The Witham Academy is based in the heart of Lincoln providing high quality education for all.  We inspire and excite pupils to be passionate about learning and achieve excellence through our Academy values of Wisdom, Generosity, Courage, Passion and Curiosity.

We understand deciding on the choice of secondary school is one of the most difficult decisions you will make in your child’s education and is something that you will take much time considering. 

At the Witham we are working hard to ensure you have the opportunity to visit us in person.  We are welcoming families to visit the Academy during the school day for personal tours where you will be able to meet with a member of the senior team and tour the site. 

To arrange your personal tour please contact Mrs Chris Jackson or call 01522 882900.  You can also find more information on our website, by following us on Twitter @PrioryWitham or within the prospectus below.

If you do have any questions regarding the Year 6 to 7 transition process please do not hesitate to contact me.

We look forward to welcoming you.

Mrs D Clarke
Secondary Headteacher


Starting secondary school in Year 7

You apply for your child to start secondary school in Year 7 through the coordinated admissions scheme run by the local authority in which you live.

Parents resident in Lincolnshire can apply online through Lincolnshire County Council’s website: https://www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/school-admissions. You can also apply by telephone, or ask for a hard copy application form, by telephoning 01522 782030.  Parents resident in other areas must apply through the local authority in which they live.   

The deadline for applications to be returned is 31st October in the year before admission in September.  Offers of places are made on 1st March in the same year as admission. If we are not able to offer you a place, you can appeal against that decision.

You can find the full admission arrangements for the academy, including the criteria used to decide who is admitted when the academy is oversubscribed, by visiting The Priory Witham Academy - Admissions.

Moving secondary schools – in-year admissions

If your child is already at school and you wish to move secondary schools then you must make a new application.  The academy is part of Lincolnshire’s coordinated scheme for in-year admissions. Details of Lincolnshire’s coordinated scheme can be found at https://www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/school-admissions/apply-move-school.

Wherever you live, you can apply to a new school directly or through Lincolnshire County Council’s website: https://www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/school-admissions.  You can also apply by telephone, or ask for a hard copy application form, by telephoning 01522 782030.  The academy does not have its own admission form and if you wish to apply on paper, you can use the common application provided by Lincolnshire admissions team.

You can apply to move schools at any time. We will aim to respond within 10 school days but you will always be notified of the outcome of your application within 15 school days. If we are not able to offer a place, you can appeal against that decision.

You can find the full admission arrangements for the academy, including the criteria used to decide who is admitted when the academy is oversubscribed, by visiting The Priory Witham Academy - Admissions.
