How to Apply

For a place at King’s

Thank you for your interest in King’s Leadership Academy.  In the interests of fairness and transparency, Bolton Local Authority compiles our Y7 admission lists.

If you are unsuccessful in your application you will automatically be contacted and offered a place on our waiting list.

Admissions Arrangements



















Waiting Lists 

Where in any year the Academy receives more applications for places than there are places available, a waiting list will operate after the beginning of the school year. The waiting list will be maintained by the Academy Trust. It will be open to any parent to ask for his or her child’s name to be placed on the waiting list, following an unsuccessful application.

Children’s position on the waiting list will be determined solely in accordance with the over-subscription criteria. Where places become vacant they will be allocated to children on the waiting list in accordance with the over-subscription criteria.
