Under the current Government legislation, parents have the right to apply for a place at any school regardless of their address. If the number of applications for places at the school exceed the number of places available, then certain admissions criteria will apply. These criteria are clearly set out in our admissions policy which applied to every school within the Trust.
We are currently consulting on proposed Admissions changes at Rothwell Victoria Infant School and Rothwell Junior School for the September 2025 intake.
Comments on the proposed changes can be made directly to NNC via the following link https://northnorthants.citizenspace.com/school-admissions/consultation-on-school-admission-sep-2025/
All admissions to any Pathfinder School is coordinated through either North Northamptonshire (all schools except Naseby CofE Primary School) or West Northamptonshire (for Naseby CofE Primary School).
Information on the school performance tables published by the Secretary of State on the Department for Education's website can be found below.
How we are funded
Every Trust enters into a ‘master funding agreement’ which regulates the funding of all the schools in the Trust. This is a formal contract, that was signed by both the Trust and the Secretary of State for Education when it was first established. It contains some conditions that Pathfinder Schools must abide by in order to comply with the terms of their funding.
Additional governing instruments
Articles of association – this sets out the purpose of the Trust (known as the Trust’s objects) and the composition of the board of Trustees.
Scheme of delegation - the role of our local governing bodies and the responsibility delegated to them is set down in a scheme of delegation, set by the board of trustees of the Trust.
