How to Apply

Please Note: Because our school is new, there is a separate application process for this year only.

If you would like your child to be considered for a place at St Michael’s, you will need to complete our application form – this will be available on our website from 1st November Please return this form directly to Admissions Officer, Learning Academy Partnership,Suite 4, Zealley House, Greenhill Way, Kingsteignton TQ12 3SB or email to

You should also complete the council’s Common Application Form where you can give three other school preferences.

Please also complete the supplementary form to tell the Local Authority where your application for St Michael’s fits with your other preferences.

We will work with the Local Authority to ensure that your child is offered the highest possible preference school. However, because the timing of the admission process for St Michael’s may not fit exactly with the normal admission process, the Local Authority may have to offer you a place at both St Michael’s and at another preferred school and then check with you to see which place you want.


Nursery Places

We aim to offer either highly competitive paid child care places, 2 year-old free childcare and 15 hours free early education for all 3 and 4-year-olds.

For parents/carers interested in a place for their child in our nursery, the deadlines are as follows:

  • Apply by 1st May for a September start
  • Apply by 1st October for a January start
  • Apply by 1st February for an April start
