The Academy is non-selective, taking in mixed, multi-ethnic students of all abilities. The admissions policy for the Academy reflects the Bradford inclusion strategy and the local special educational needs strategy.
Year 7 Admissions:
The Academy will admit up to 180 students in year 7. The Local Authority must receive applications for a place at Samuel Lister Academy by 31st October for students wishing to join Y7 the following September. It is very important that the form is returned by the closing date because forms received after this date will be treated as ‘late’. Late applications are not dealt with until all those received on time have been through the application process.
