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 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.

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