In Year Admission Applications

Students who are of secondary age, in Years 7- 11, can apply to the School for a place using the Local Authority application form which can be found on the website using the link below:

Once an application is accepted, and we are unable to offer a place due to the year group being full, it is placed on the School’s waiting list based upon the distance residing from school with ‘Looked after Children’ and sibling claims receiving priority.   The application will then remain on the waiting list until the end of the current academic year in which the application is received unless you request your application to be removed.  If a place becomes available during the year, it will be offered to the student at the top of the waiting list first.

If your application indicates that your child does not currently have a school place and we are unable to offer you a place, your details are passed to the Local Authority’s School Admissions and Pupil Placements Service.  They will arrange for your child to be offered a place at the nearest school to your home address with a vacancy in your child’s year group.

At the end of each academic year, the waiting lists are cleared. New applications for the following academic year will be accepted from the end of August for the start of the new September term.

If you apply to the school and it has not been possible to offer your child a place, you have the right of appeal to an Independent Appeal Panel.  If you wish to exercise your right of appeal please contact the School Admissions and Pupil Placements Service on 0121 303 1888.
