The David Nieper Academy is all-inclusive and non-selective and we welcome applications from students from across Alfreton, Crich, Woodbridge and surrounding areas.

We hold open evenings for Year 5/6 children and their parents/carers to visit the Academy and receive tours by current students.

Visiting the School | How to Apply

Apply for a place at the Academy

If your child was born between 1 September 2005 and 31 August 2006 and is in their last year of primary school you should apply for their secondary school place by 31 October 2016. They will start secondary school in September 2017.  The application process is quick and easy. Please refer to the Admissions section on the Derbyshire County Council website.

If your child attends a school outside of Derbyshire which operates a different pattern of education and they are due to transfer to secondary school phase in September 2017, you should also make an application by 31 October 2016.

You may want to apply for your child to change schools other than when they are due to start their secondary education. If you wish to apply for a place this can be done online at any time of year, again via the Derbyshire County Council website.
