Admissions

Cedars Academy welcomes applications from students across the city and county.

It is important to stress that whilst Cedars is an independent State Funded academy, we have commissioned Leicestershire County Council to manage and administer the applications and appeals process.

The Cedars Academy will only accept students for the appropriate academic year based on their chronological age unless there is clear picture of need for a different year based on evidence e.g. EHCP/statement of SEN.
