Admissions:

The Academy provides places for the following year groups:

KS3
KS4

Lower School Admissions - Academic Year 2019/20

Key Stage 3 places will generally be made available for children for one year’s duration. At the end of the year they will return and be absorbed back into their home school with a reintegration plan. There will be 15 places for each year group – Year 7, 8 and 9 The Free School has an admission number of 45 into Key stage 3 for the academic year 201718 onwards

The Free School will accordingly provide for the admission of this number of pupils each year if sufficient applications for entry are received. Where fewer than the published admission number are admitted at any time, the Free School Trust may offer places in other year groups at the Free School to those who have applied.

Applications for places at the Free School in Year 7, 8, or Year 9, will be made by the current school or the LA, both acting as commissioners. The Free School will have an application form and on receipt of an application form will undertake interviews with the child’s tutors, parents and the child himself or herself. The child will also undergo an assessment. If it is agreed by all parties that the placement is suitable for the child, a Personal Learning Plan will be produced and he/she and the parents will be required to sign a commitment to behaviour and to the learning plan. Decisions whether to offer a place lie with the Free School Principal.

If Year 7, 8 Year 9 is oversubscribed (i.e. more applications are agreed as suitable by the Principal than places are available) then, after the admission of students with Special Educational Needs where the Free School is named on the statement, the criteria will be applied in the order in which they are set out below to determine which students should be given priority for the places available:

  • Looked after and former looked after young people.
  • The date on which the application was received with the earliest applications being given preference;
  • The distance of the applicant’s home from the Free School with those applicants living closest being given priority.

There will be a right of appeal for all unsuccessful applicants to an independent appeal panel which must include an educationalist experienced in the teaching and management of children with behavioural problems.

Year 10 and 11 Admissions

There will be an admission number of 60 for children in Year 11 and 30 in Year 10 in 2018/19 and subsequent years the admission number will be 60 in Year 11 and 30 in Year 10.These children will be enrolled on examination programmes and therefore placements need to be for an entire academic year.

The Free School will accordingly provide for the admission of this number of Year 10 and Year 11 pupils each year if sufficient applications for entry are received. Where fewer than the published admission number for the relevant year group are admitted at any time, the Free School Trust may offer more places in other year groups at the Free School to those who have applied.

Applications for places at the Free School in Year 10 and 11 will be made by the current school or the LA as commissioners. The Free School will have an application form and on receipt of an application form will undertake interviews with the child’s tutors, parents and the child himself or herself. The child will also undergo an assessment. If it is agreed by all parties that the placement is suitable for the child, a Personal Learning Plan will be produced and he/she and the parents will be required to sign a commitment to behaviour and to the learning plan. Decisions whether to offer a place lie with the Free School Principal.

If Year 10 or 11 is oversubscribed (i.e. more applications are agreed as suitable by the Principal than places are available) then, after the admission of students with Special Educational Needs where the Free School is named on the statement, the criteria will be applied in the order in which they are set out below to determine which students should be given priority for the places available:

Looked after and former looked after young people

  • The date on which the application was received with the earliest applications being given preference;
  • The distance of the applicant’s home from the Free School with those applicants living closest being given priority.

There will be a right of appeal for all unsuccessful applicants to an independent appeal panel which must include an educationalist experienced in the teaching and management of children with behavioural problems.

Arrangements for Admission at other times of the year

The Free School is not part of the LA’s co-ordinated admission arrangements for in-year and other year group admissions. If a commissioner applies for a place outside the normal admissions round for a September entry they should apply direct to the Free School.  The Free School must consider all such applications and if the year group applied for has a place available, follow the admission procedures set out above for the respective Year groups If more applications are received than there are places available, the place will be allocated to the applicant who has the highest priority, applying the criteria set out above. 

In order to obtain an application form please e-mail Miss McLean at info@harrisaspire.org.uk
