In-year admissions

How to apply for an in-year place

All applications for a place at the School must be made through the Local Authority using the Common Preference Form. This can be accessed through this link – applications can be made online or by paper.

The School will consider all applications for places. Where the number of applications exceeds the number of places available, the above oversubscription criteria will be applied. The outcome of each application will be communicated to the parent/carer within the specified timescales. If the application is unsuccessful, parents/carers will be informed as to how to submit an appeal.

If you are interested in your child attending Corby Technical School please contact school reception on 01536 213100 or e-mail

Waiting list

The School operates a waiting list for Year 7 – Year 11 places. If a place is available then it will be filled by a place on the waiting list subject to the conditions set out in the oversubscription criteria. Parents/carers must notify the School if they wish their child to be on the waiting list. Parents/carers must reconfirm they wish their child to remain on the waiting list within one week of the start of each new academic term. Failure to do so may result in removal from the waiting list.
