If you are applying for a place in our Nursery, please contact the academy office the year before your child turns three. You will then receive an application the year before your child is of school age so that you can apply for a place. Please be aware that we are often oversubscribed and aim to return your application as soon as possible. For further details, please refer to our academy policy on admissions



Reception to Year 6

Our admissions for Reception to Year 6 are made through Leicester City Council.

Thurnby Lodge Primary Academy Admissions Consultation

The Academy is making changes to its policy for admissions arrangements for the 2019/20 academic year and subsequent years and the policy is presented here. The same changes are being made to all academies in RMET (Rushey Mead Educational Trust).

 The changes are to bring the policy in line with the proposed admissions arrangements for 2019/20 that Leicester City Council is consulting on this year, which are listed here along with the rationale. The Academy remains part of the Leicester City admissions process and, therefore, the Local Authority administers all admissions to the Academy.

 The consultation period runs from 18 December 2017 to 31 January 2018 and allows anyone with an interest (for example parents, other schools and the local community) to comment about the proposed 2019/20 admission arrangements. You can comment by:


    · Writing to: Cathy Brown, Rushey Mead Educational Trust, Rushey Mead Academy,Melton Road, Leicester LE4 7AN

·        · Emailing us at:


There is consultation on the admissions arrangements for all seven academies in the Trust so please indicate which academy you are commenting on if appropriate.
