Fallibroome is a special place. We are in the privileged position of helping our young people achieve their potential and become active citizens and future leaders. Our status as an Outstanding National Teaching School and College of Performing Arts brings the resources required to meet the needs of all our students and provides extensive development opportunities for staff.
Our success is based on a commitment to personal growth and a desire to meet the needs of individual students. It is built on core values of trust, respect and optimism as well as a clear understanding of the conditions required for effective learning. We sustain our success because the following foundations are in place:
Our commitment to ‘System Leadership’ has enabled us to create a Multi-Academy Trust with Nether Alderley Primary and the sponsorship of Broken Cross Primary and the Winsford Academy. In addition we have a special relationship with our seven partner primary schools with whom we created the Fallibroome Learning Community in order to ensure the provision of a high quality of education from ages 2-19.
Our commitment to continuous improvement means we are never satisfied and a systematic approach to development and research means we can attract the best teachers and support staff who want to create the exciting opportunities for students to succeed. We are a Pathfinder School for the Whole Education network and our drive for excellence will ensure that Fallibroome students have the opportunity to develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to succeed in the 21st Century.

In the event of The Fallibroome Academy being over-subscribed the Governors of the school, in prioritising applications, will use the following criteria:
All schools will be treated equally.
If the school is named in a statement of educational needs the Governors have a duty to admit the child to the school.
In relation to children of multiple births, exceptionally it may be necessary to offer places over the published admission number. This is to ensure that, as far as possible, siblings (i.e. twins, triplets or children from other multiple births) can attend the same school.
Where capacity is exceeded in any of the above admission criteria a place will be allocated to the student living nearest to the school measured using an ‘address – point system’. (i.e. the Local Authority distance measuring system which measures straight line distance in miles from the student’s permanent place of residence to the main school).
Proof of address and residency may be required and the Governors retain the right to withdraw any place offered on the basis of a fraudulent or intentionally misleading application.
When a child lives at more than one address e.g. spends part of each week at different addresses, full details of the arrangements must be included on the application form (or by means of an accompanying note) to enable the Governors to decide which address (or, exceptionally, addresses) to use for admission purposes.
Late applications for places will be considered after all applications received on time.
Repeat applications will not be considered within the same school year, unless the parents’ or the school’s circumstances have changed significantly since the original application was made.
Pupils whose applications for year 7 are unsuccessful will be placed on a ‘reserve list’ for the first term of the academic year. If any further places become available, they will be allocated according to the oversubscription criteria set out in these arrangements.
Following changes in admissions legislation, applications for school places received after the first day of the school year into the relevant age group (which includes the reception class at age 4+ and secondary transfer at 11+) or into any other year group must be made on the common application form provided by the authority where you live, i.e. your ‘home’ local authority.
September Information and application packs are made available for parents by the local authority, inviting a parental statement of preferences of secondary school.
October Preference forms are to be submitted to the authority by the given date.
November The authority sends preference forms to school and the Governors’ Admissions Panel applies the agreed criteria.
January The school informs the Local Authority of the criteria to be used for each application, to inform the allocation process.
March The authority advises parents whether their application has been successful and informs unsuccessful applicants of their right of appeal.
