There are three ways of becoming a student at Barnhill
- Admission at the start of Year 7
- Admission at the start of Year 12
- In-Year Admissions during Years 7 to 10
Admission at the start of Year 7
Barnhill Community High is part of the Pan-London Co-ordinated Admissions Scheme and application forms for Year 7 transfer can be obtained from the Local Authority in which your child lives. Alternatively you can apply online at www.eadmissions.org.uk. The closing date for applications is in line with published procedures. Offer letters will be sent to parents by their local authority on 1 March 2012.
Open Evening will be held at the school on Wednesday 28 September, 6.00pm – 8.30pm. At this event, you can pick up a prospectus, hear the Headteacher’s presentation, talk to staff and students, and see the building and facilities.
There will also be tours of the school, further information to follow.
Contact our Admissions Officer, Mrs Paul for more details, telephone 020 8839 0647, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are 240 places in Year 7, and last year there were 526 applications.
Admission at the start of Year 12
At the Year 12 Open Evening you will be able to find out what our Sixth Form has to offer, and the range of courses available.
Applications for In-Year Admissions are made in the same way as those made during the normal admissions round. Parents are required to complete a Common Application Form (CAF) from their Home Local Authority. If a place is available and there is no waiting list then the Local Authority will communicate the Governor’s offer of a place to the family. If there are no places available this will be conveyed to the Local Authority who will write to the parent with this information. You may ask us for the reasons why a place cannot be offered and you will be informed of your right of Appeal. You will be offered the opportunity of being placed on a waiting list. The waiting list will be maintained by the Governing Body in the order of the oversubscription criteria and not in the order in which the applications are received.
When a place becomes available the school will advise the Local Authority of the child who is at the top of the waiting list so that the Home Local Authority can inform the parent that an offer is being made on behalf of the Governing Body.
