To apply for a Nursery place, please contact Sonia Alexander in our main office for an application form and support and advice on how to apply. It is important to note that a place in the Nursery class does not guarantee a place in the main school and you will need to reapply for a Reception place.
Reception places 2017
We have 60 places available for Reception class in September.
To apply for a place in the Reception class at our Academy you will need to complete the Southwark online common application form. There is no supplementary form for admission to our Academy. Further information about the application process can be found here. A timeline showing when you will hear whether your application has been successful and when and how to appeal if not successful can be found here.
Procedures where The Academy is oversubscribed
The Academy will consider all applications for places. Where fewer than 60 applications are received, the Academy will offer places to all those who have applied.
Where the number of applications for admission is greater than the published admissions number, applications will be considered against the criteria set out below. After the admission of pupils with statements of Special Educational Needs where the Academy is named on the statement, the criteria will be applied in the order in which they are set out below:
a) Children in public care (Looked After Children) and children who were looked after but ceased to be so because they were adopted (or became subject to a residence order or special guardianship order).
b) Children who will have brothers or sisters attending the Academy at their time of entry (brothers and sisters includes half-brothers and sisters and step-brothers and sisters who share the same home. It also includes adopted and foster brothers and sisters sharing the same home);
c) Nearness to the Academy, as calculated by straight line distance from the main gate. This is measured by using a computerised GIS and a centre point supplied by the Ordnance Survey determines the start point of the measurement from the home address. Where the child lives in a block of flats with a communal entrance the centre point used is the central point of the block of flats and not the individual flat. If children are tied for the final place(s) to be allocated, the lower door number will be given priority.
