Matford Brook Academy in Exeter

This school will open in September 2023 with children starting in year 7 and Reception. As with all new free schools, its opening will be confirmed when the Trust receives a funding agreement from the Department for Education. Until then, it can’t be included in the co-ordinated admissions scheme. The decision is anticipated on or before 1 February 2023.

You should apply for Matford Brook if you want to and apply for other schools. An offer for Matford Brook would be conditional on the school opening. Applying for other schools will make sure there will be an offer you can take up.

You will be asked to apply for up to 4 schools in the usual way so that you only have to complete one form

Applying in this way will make sure that you are not disadvantaged by making an application, whether or not the school opens in September 2023, as we expect.

In Year Admissions.

Please ensure you have read our in-year admissions guide before you begin the application process as this will assist you in understanding the process.

Please contact us on 0345 155 1019 or admissions@devon.gov.uk to request a hard copy of the application form.
