Barnes Wallis Academy

At Barnes Wallis Academy we aim to provide each and every one of our students with the guidance and support they need to excel.


As an Academy in the David Ross Education Trust, we still operate under the Local Authority's admissions scheme.

The published admission number (PAN) is currently 112. (120 in year 7 from September 2022)

After this we allocate places based on the admissions criteria as outlined in the policy at the bottom of this page.

Transfers from Primary Schools to Year 7 are managed by Lincolnshire County Council. The County Council website also provides options for completing online admissions form for both normal and mid-year admissions.
