Applications for a place at SCWA next September have increased again. We have had 1,300 applications for 270 places with 689 first or second preferences. We have come a long way since 2010 when we had 612 applications and only 166 first and second preferences.
Michael Murphy, Principal, commented "I'm not at all surprised by this but it is heartening to know that the future of the academy is secure. These figures complement the 'comprehensive' nature of our client group with 40% high ability, 40% average ability and 20% low ability. We now have a KS2 average points score of above 29 which is significantly higher than five years ago. It's now down to us to translate all this good news into high standards."
