Applications from boys and girls will be welcome from the start of the autumn term. If you are interested in a place, you should name the Academy on the Common Application Form (CAF) supplied to you by your Local Authority. For applications in 2020-2021 our PAN is 180.
For any queries regarding new admissions please email Mrs S Miles at firstname.lastname@example.org
Common Application Form: deadline 31st October 2020. This must be completed and returned to your LEA (Local Education Authority). We'll then be notified of your application and invite prospective Year 6 students for our banding test day.
Supplementary Information Form: deadline 31st October 2020. Please complete this form ONLY if you would like your child to be considered for any concessions during the Year 6 banding test. Concessions relate to issues that you feel would need to be taken into consideration when he/she takes the Year 6 banding test. (e.g. epilepsy, hearing problems, sight conditions, problems with reading or writing, including dyslexia, mobility etc)?
Please return your completed Supplementary Information Form directly to Harris Academy Beckenham. The SEN Coordinator will then make the decision as to the appropriate concession required (e.g. wheelchair access, scribes, larger print etc). NB: completion of a Supplementary Information Form does not constitute an application to the Academy and is only used for the purpose of the Year 6 banding test. You must complete the Local Education Authority Common Application Form as well.
Year 6 Banding Test Date: Friday 11th December 2020. We use Banding tests to ensure we're admitting pupils with a wide range of academic abilities. Everyone who applied for Harris Academy Beckenham will be sent an official invitation letter nearer the time.
