Co-educational application successful!

Posted on: 19/10/2017

We are delighted to announce that from the start of the new academic year in August 2018, The Lancaster Academy is moving from a single sex, boys only school, to a co-educational school for both boys and girls. The co-educational provision will apply to the new year 7 cohort.


The Academy believe that a new co-educational environment will best support students to grow into responsible and respectful citizens prepared to take their place in a modern and diverse society.  In order to support this, we are undertaking careful planning and management to make sure we create a safe, supportive and respectful learning environment for boys and girls alike.


If you would like to now add The Lancaster Academy to your admissions application as one of your three preferences, and you haven’t already done so, you have until midnight on Tuesday 31 October, 2017 to do this.  You can do this by logging into the application portal and amending your application, if you have already made one, or starting a new application if you haven’t.


If you wish to add The Lancaster Academy to your application but are having trouble with logging back into the application portal, please email us at


We welcome visits during the school day, at Lancaster every day is an open day. To make your appointment call 0116 270 3176 or email


If you don’t apply by 31 October 2017, you can still add it to your application after this time but it will be treated as a late preference
