Apply for a place

Nottinghamshire County Council continues to administer the admissions process for Tuxford Academy and entry is still based upon the admissions criteria.

If you are offered a place

If you are offered a place at Tuxford Academy, please accept or refuse it quickly so that, if you no longer want to attend, we may offer your place to another family. Students with accepted places will receive a transition pack in the summer term.
