New Parent School Tour

We are delighted to offer our new parents and carers the opportunity to attend a guided tour by a member of our senior leadership team of Hamilton Academy (soon to become Orchard Mead). This tour will offer an unrivalled opportunity to see our school during the academic day and provides a further chance for you to learn more about the academy and ask any questions you may have about your child’s transition.

This opportunity is open to parents of our new year 7 cohort starting in August 2019. Preliminary dates for the tours are:

Monday 29th April at 9:30am – 10.30am
Tuesday 30th April at 10:45am – 11.45am
Wednesday 8th May at 10:45am – 11.45am

Places are limited, if you would like to attend please contact Mrs J Wetwood on 0116 241 3371 to book you place.

If you are a parent of a current year 5 pupil considering sending your child to our Academy in Autumn 2020 and would like to attend a similar tour, please register your interest by contacting Mrs J Wetwood on 0116 241 3371.

Hamilton Academy Admissions

Having joined TMET (The Mead Educational Trust) in September 2017, Hamilton Academy is its own admissions authority and as such has to establish its own admissions arrangements. The admissions policy for the 2019/20 academic year is presented here. The Academy has decided to remain part of the Leicester City admissions process and, therefore, the Local Authority administers all admissions to the Academy.


The admission arrangements for Hamilton Academy are managed by Leicester City Council. Contact the Schools Admission Team;
