Downham Market Academy does not select pupils for admission and will consider all applications for places.
Year 7 (11+) Entry
The majority of our students join us after the end of year six, at the culmination of their primary school education, joining us at the start of year seven.
Applications for places at the academy should be made in accordance with Norfolk County Council’s admissions arrangements, referred to as the ‘transfer to secondary school admission round’. Further information and application forms can be downloaded from their transfer to secondary school page.
For admissions outside of the normal age range, we will consider all requests to place children outside of their normal age group including summer born and premature children in line with the requirements of paragraph 2.17 and 2.17B of the School Admissions Code.
Key information for parents and students joining us in Year 7 can be found on our Transition page.
