It is still possible to apply for a Reception place at Sywell for September 2021 and we have a few places available in some other year groups. If your child does not yet have a place, or you wish to change, please contact the school office.

Please see the school's Admission Policy below. Here you will also find the parish boundary information and the Supplementary Information Form (SIF/A) regarding Church allegiance.

For all new and in-year admissions please contact the schools' admissions team at North Northamptonshire Council, using  this link.


How to appeal for a place at our school

If you have applied and been refused a place at Sywell School (in any year group), you are entitled to appeal against that decision.

Appeals for PDET academies are administered by the Diocese of Peterborough education team. For more information on the process please see:

If you wish to appeal please contact the Appeals Administrator by emailing and ask for an appeals pack.

The pack includes some explanatory notes about the process of Admission Appeals and a Notice of Appeal form that, should you decide to proceed with an appeal, will need to be completed and returned by email if possible, but if not, to the Diocesan Office instead.
