In-Year Admissions

Policy and Procedural Arrangements for In-Year Admissions and Waiting Lists (Yr7-11)

Year 7 (first term)

If a vacancy arises during the first term of Year 7, the waiting list in existence from 1 March of that year will be used and the place offered in accordance with the admissions criteria above. This is a list of those who sat the entrance test and achieved the qualifying score who did not receive an offer from this school or a more preferred school.

Mid Year 7 - 11

At any point from January after the pupil starts Year 7, parents/carers may apply for a place at the school. In-year vacancies normally only become available if a current pupil is leaving the school. Any applicant who cannot be offered a place will be added to the school’s waiting list and parents/carers will be informed of their right of appeal. If a vacancy arises, candidates on the waiting list will be invited to take a test and the place will be awarded to the highest-scoring candidate above a minimum standard.

Parents/carers will need to reapply at the start of each academic year if they want their child to be included on the waiting list where a place cannot be offered.

The Academy aims to notify parents/carers of the outcome of their in-year application within 10 school days, and we will notify parents/carers in writing within 15 school days.
