Admissions to the Hazel Leys Academy

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are unable to host school visits at this time, so instead we would like to provide you with an insight into life at Hazel Leys Academy through this short video.



The Hazel Leys Academy provides education for children within the 3 -11 age range in the Corby area.  If your child turns 4 before 31st August 2021, it’s time to apply for their primary school place.

For Reception year, in the year preceding admission, parents should apply online. Click Here to apply on-line where you can make your application and find helpful tips and information.

All applications to Reception year starting September 2022 must be completed and submitted to the Local Authority by 5.00pm on 15 January 2022.  Any applications for Reception year made after this date will be deemed as late and will not be processed until after National Offer day. Late applications will be processed in the additional rounds of allocation which begin in May 2022.

For all other in-year admissions, parents must apply for a place through the Local Authority

For admission to our Nursery, please contact the Academy office on 01536 202681.

Please be aware that the regulations under Section I of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998 limit the size of an infant class (a class in which the majority of children will reach the age of 5, 6 or 7 during the school year) to 30 pupils per class teacher. Admissions over this limit are only permitted in very limited circumstances.
