Changes to our Admissions Policy

Stamford Welland Academy proposes that the school admission policy for the academic year 2016-17 (for applications in October-December 2015) is altered to include the following changes:

·         It will increase its published admission number for Year 7 to 120.

·          It will use a grid reference point in Red Lion Square – the historic centre of Stamford, as the measurement for distance in the distance over-subscription criterion.Stamford Welland Academy is the only state secondary school, serving the whole of the community.  Two miles radius from this point covers the whole of Stamford.  Priority will be given to the child living nearest to the point in Red Lion Square.

·         Greater commitment is offered to the children of Armed Forces personnel to meet the government’s military covenant and to avoid disadvantage to children of forces personnel and crown servants returning from abroad.


The policy is available to view at:

for public consultation.
