Having joined TMET (The Mead Educational Trust) in September 2017, Orchard Mead Academy (Formerly Hamilton Academy) act’s as it’s own admissions authority and as such we are responsible for setting the criteria for admission and their interpretation; however, at all times we will act in accordance with the School Admissions Code published by the Department for Education. The Academy has decided to remain part of the Leicester City admissions process and, therefore, the local authority administers all admissions to theAcademy.
