Admission Criteria

Any child with an Education, Health and Care Plan is required to be admitted to the School named in the plan. This gives such children overall priority for admission to the School. This is not an oversubscription criterion.

Where there are more applications than places at the School, each preference expressed by a parent for Hamstead Hall Academy is considered equally with those of other applicants  and places are offered  in accordance  with the admission criteria as follows:

 1. Looked  after children  or children who were previously  looked  after but immediately after being looked after became  subject  to an adoption,  child arrangement  or special guardianship  order. This includes any child I young person who is subject to a Full Care Order, an interim Care Order, accommodated under Section 22 of the Children Act 1989, is remanded or detained into Local Authority accommodation under Criminal Law or who has been placed for adoption.

 2. Children (siblings) with a brother or sister already at the school and who will still be in attendance at the time the sibling enters the Academy.

 3. Children who are currently in Year 6 at Grestone Academy.

 4. Children who live nearest the Academy.

Within each of these categories, priority is given to those who live nearest to the School, calculated on the basis of a straight-line measurement between home and the Community Learning Centre Gate on Craythorne Avenue.  The home address is accurately located using a computerised mapping system, and the distance between the applicant’s home and the School is measured, by computer, to the nearest metre.
