Wilton is now an academy and a member school of Tees Valley Education. Academies are their own admissions authority and must meet all the mandatory provisions of the School Admissions Code (the Code) that came into force on 19 December 2014 except where variations have been written into their funding agreement to support fair access. You can access a copy of our current year’s admissions policy and the policy for 2022/23 below. If you wish to apply for a place at our academy for your child, please contact the school office in the first instance on 01642 453374
