Year 10 Applications
Applications for Year 10 places 2017-18 (starting September 2017)
To apply to NUAST for a place in Year 10 you will need to go online and submit your application through the Nottingham City Council application system or the Nottinghamshire County Council application system (To apply through other local authorities use the links below). Applications for Year 10 entry cannot be made directly to NUAST.
Nottingham City Council Applications
Nottingham City Council generally consider applications after the 31st October to be 'late', however NUAST does not consider any application late. Early applications are advised, particularly with the school growing and this also means you will receive a response from Nottingham City Council more quickly.
If you apply to NUAST before the October deadline, you can expect to receive a confirmation from Nottingham City Council before the Easter holiday. Applications received from November 2016 onwards will be dealt with in the Spring and Summer term.
Upon receiving confirmation from Nottingham City Council that your child has been offered a place, it is important that you confirm the offer with them directly by calling 0115 841 5568 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nottinghamshire County Council Applications
Nottinghamshire County Council consider applications to be late if applying after the 31st October, however you can still apply to NUAST throughout the academic year for entry in September 2017.
To apply via Nottinghamshire County Council we would recommend contacting their Admissions Team on 0300 500 80 80 in the first instance for guidance on how to apply.
Once we have received official confirmation from your Local Authority that your application has been successful we will be in touch to invite you into NUAST to meet staff, fellow students and begin the transition process for your September 2017 start.

Current Year 10 ‘in-year’ applications during 2016/17
If you want to join in the academic year 2016/17, you will need to apply directly to the academy for a year 10 place (which will then be an "in-year" application). To apply from September 2016 onwards, complete our online contact form in the first instance giving details of your request.
"In year" applications are for those children looking to transfer from one school to another within the current academic year (for example, they have already started their studies at their current school).
Once your initial enquiry has been submitted we will contact you and invite you and your child to a meeting with the Principal. Full details will be sent to you upon application.
