Academy Admissions

Welcome to the Harris Aspire Academy Admissions page.

Academy Admissions contact details:

Admissions Officer Ms Conran

Phone: 0203 370 9238
Address: Harris Aspire Academy, 11 Oliver Grove, London SE25 6EJ


The Academy provides places for the following year group:

Year 10 and 11 Admissions

There will be an admission number of 65 for children in Years 10 and 11 in 2020/21 and subsequent years the admission number will be 60 in Year 11. These children will be enrolled on examination programmes and therefore placements need to be for an entire academic year. Applications should therefore be made by 30th April for admission on the following 1st September.

The Free School will accordingly provide for the admission of this number of Year 10 and 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.

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 Ms Conran at
