Apply for a Place


Following our conversion to Academy status in May 2012, authority for admissions now rests with us.


View the admissions policy

We follow Newcastle City Council's admissions procedures for secondary schools for all year groups. This includes the admission arrangements for learners in Years 8 to 11 who are making in-year applications.

If you are interested in your child joining us, please apply for a place at Kenton School.

Making an objection about our admissions policy

There is a right for people to object about the policy to the Schools Adjudicator (OSA). See the Schools Adjudicator website for more information on how to do this.

Sixth form open days

Details of open days for learners considering studying with us at sixth form will be shared via our news page and social media accounts.

Studio West

As part of Kenton Schools Academy Trust, we work closely with our colleagues at Studio West to ensure that every learner who would like to study with us is offered the best choice of education.

Studio West offers a different approach to Kenton School: education is often taken out of the classroom, with learners working in teams in the real world on projects designed to reflect real-life situations. Learners also attend weekly work placements to develop the employability skills needed to succeed in life and work.
