High School Admissions - Page 11

Applying for high school Starting high school If your child was born between 1 September 2006 and 31 August 2007 s/he will transfer from primary to high school in September 2018. Co-ordinated admissions system Under the Pan-London Co-ordinated Admissions System, all parents living in the borough of Ealing can apply for up to six different state maintained high schools or academies in or outside the Borough of Ealing. This is done online at www.eadmissions.org.uk or by completing a paper application. Preferences need to be ranked in order of priority. This is important as we will offer the highest preference possible and withdraw your application for your lower preferences. Where a school is oversubscribed, its published admissions criteria will be used to decide the order in which applicants will be offered places. Schools will not see where they are ranked in your preference order and no school will see any other preference schools you have applied to. Please note this system only applies to schools in the state maintained sector. If you are applying to private/independent schools you need to contact them and apply direct to the school. All new schools proposed to open in 2018 will be outside the co-ordinated application process. Parents wishing to apply to those schools will need to contact the school directly and apply on the school’s application form. Parents are strongly advised to also apply for established secondary schools through the co-ordinated system as there is no guarantee at this point that the new schools will open in 2018. Deciding on your preferences You are strongly advised to name your nearest non-faith school as one of your school preferences. Before deciding on your remaining preferences you should: • Attend any meeting held by your child’s primary school explaining how to apply for high school. • Attend open evenings at as many schools as possible. • Read the prospectus and admissions criteria for each school you are applying to. It is very important that you look at each school’s admissions criteria in relation to your circumstances so that you are aware of the order in which places are allocated at over-subscribed schools. • Look at the school statistics table on pages 8 & 9 to see the criterion and distance from home to school of the last child to be offered a place. Each year parents are disappointed because they apply to schools where they are clearly outside of the distance or criteria to be offered a place i.e. distance from home to school is far greater than the last to be offered or are a lower criteria. Attend one of the admissions advice sessions: • Contact the Admissions Team to make an appointment at Perceval House on 25, 26 or 27 September between 10am and 4pm. OR Drop in on 28 September, Ealing Town Hall, Liz Cantell Room between 3:30pm and 6:30pm. Late applications The closing date for receipt of all applications either paper or online is, 31 October 2017 applications received after this date will be considered late and will be dealt with after the offer date of 1 March 2018. If your application is received after the closing date of 31 October 2017 you are greatly decreasing your chance of obtaining a place at your preferred school. If you have returned an application between 1 November 2017 and 8 December 2017 and any of the below apply you must contact the Admissions Team as your application may be considered on time: • You have recently moved • You have proof that your application was submitted on-time but has not been received by Schools Admissions before 31 October 2017. • You have exceptional circumstances for lateness (e.g. where a single parent/carer has been ill and the illness prevented the application being made on time or the family has been dealing with the death of a close relative). Moving address If you move after submitting your application form but before the closing date, 31 October 2017 you must inform the Admissions Team or if applying online you can update your online application with your new address, up to the closing date. Failure to update your address may result in the withdrawal of the school place offered. If you move address after the closing date of 31 October and are offered a place in an Ealing School you will be entitled to retain that place if you wish. If you move after the closing date but before the 8 December 2017 you may update your address and make new on-time preferences. If you wish to use your new address and change your preference schools you will need to contact the Admissions Team. Please note that you must be living in the property by 8 December 2017 for the new address and preferences to be considered. The last date for applications or changes to be entered onto the system is 8 December 2017 therefore no changes can be considered after this date until after the offer date of 1 March 2018.
