Admissions and Appeals Policy – for admissions from Sept 2021

 

MFL aptitude test

Up to 24 places (10% of our intake) may be admitted based on their aptitude for Modern Foreign Languages, irrespective of whether or not the applicant is in the Academy’s catchment area. The Academy assesses an applicant’s aptitude for languages by means of a short test, completed in late November or early December. This test does not require a child to have studied a language, since it is not a measure of their knowledge of a specific language but is instead a measure of their aptitude for the study of languages. If you would like your son/daughter to be considered on the basis of their aptitude for Modern Foreign Languages please complete the form below by 31 October 2020. The test will be held on Monday 30 November 2020. Details of the arrangements for the test will be communicated to parents in writing once all applications have been received.

Operation of Waiting Lists

Where in Year 7 The King’s Academy receives more applications for places than there are places available, a waiting list will operate until the last day of the autumn term. This will be maintained by The Academy and it will be open to any parent to ask for his or her child’s name to be placed on the waiting list following an unsuccessful application and/or the failure of any appeal.

Children’s position on the waiting list will be determined solely in accordance with the over-subscription criteria set out above. Where places become vacant they will be allocated to children on the waiting list in accordance with the over-subscription criteria at the time of the place becoming vacant.

Children applying to go into other year groups will be admitted if there are places available.
