Our current pupil admission numbers (PAN) for Year 7 is 240 students per year.
Over the course of the past three years demand for a place at The Sir Robert Woodard Academy has increased greatly, particularly in the area of West Shoreham. To cater for our new students we initially ran a minibus from Shoreham progressing this year to a full coach service, the first few weeks of which have been very successful. There are also public transport options from the surrounding areas, more information on which can be found on our Travel page here. In 2017 the Academy went out to consultation about extending the catchment area, the results coming into effect in 2018. The new catchment area, to include the primary schools of Swiss Gardens, Shoreham Beach and Buckingham Park, is shown below. The full admissions policy for 2020/21 can be found here.
