Admission to other Year Groups for 2021/22 academic year only

The following applications will be treated as in-year admissions during 2021/22:

  • applications for admission to Year 7 which are received after 1 September 2021 (late applications for Year 7 2021 can still be made via your home local authority until 31 August 2021).
  • all other applications for admission to Years 8 and 9.

The admission authority will operate a waiting list for applications submitted for years other than the normal year of entry. Priority will not be given on the basis of the date an application was added to the list. There is no advantage to making an application early. If more applications are received than there are places available, the oversubscription criteria as set out in the published admission arrangements 2021/22 will apply. Each time a new applicant joins, the waiting list is re ranked in line with the oversubscription criteria, in order of priority. In line with the School Admissions Code we are unable to give parents/carers any indication as to the likelihood of being able to offer a place.

Music specialism places (category 4) are excluded for any in-year transfers.

  • they are resident in the UK
  • they hold full British Citizen Passports
  • they are from countries whose passports have been endorsed to show that they have the right to abode in this country

Applications for children who do not meet one of the above will not be accepted until the child is in this country.

Application Form for an 'out of year group' request

On receipt of your application we will write to you, by email, usually within 5 working days, with the outcome of your application. Please check your junk/spam folder for correspondence. If you have not received anything within this timescale then do get in touch;

If we are unable to offer you a school place, you will have the opportunity to request to go on the waiting list for the duration of the 2021/22 academic year. Waiting lists are terminated at the end of the academic year. Applications submitted in previous years do not carry forward into the next academic year.  If you have previously submitted an in year application and you were unsuccessful in gaining a place at the school, you will need to submit a new 2021/22 application.
