Admissions Policy 2021-22
We consulted on our admissions policy for September 2021 in December 2019 and January 2020. Three changes were proposed:
- The addition of an admissions criteria 4 – Children (by which is meant full,step, half, adopted, or fostered children who will be living permanently at the same address of the member of staff at the date of their entry to the school) of staff directly employed by St Andrew the Apostle Greek Orthodox School for two years or more before the admission application and still employed, without having given notice or been given notice that the employment will end, at the time the offer is made
- The clarification of the Sixth Form Process now the KS5 provision is fully open – St Andrew the Apostle Greek Orthodox Sixth Form will give priority to applications from internal students who have attended Year 11 of the school during the preceding academic year. St Andrew the Apostle Greek Orthodox Sixth Form will also accept applications for entry to the Sixth Form from external students. The Published Admission Number for external students for entry to Year 12 in September 2021 will be 50, but more places may be available subject to the take up by internal students. Acceptance onto a programme of subjects/courses is dependent upon a student having achieved the necessary minimum entry and course requirements, as published in the prospectus and course guide. Individual subjects may be limited in the number of students they can accommodate. Application Process All application forms should be completed and submitted by the midday on the last Friday of the February Holiday. External students must meet the same academic minimum entry and course requirements as internal students. Where there are more applications than places available to external students, the ‘Oversubscription Criteria’ will apply.
- The addition of an oversubscription criteria for external Sixth Form students – Should applications from suitably qualified external students (i.e. those meeting the minimum entry and course requirements) exceed the number of places available to external students, the Oversubscription Criteria (Criteria 1-6) as set out on pages 1 and 2 of this admissions policy will be applied to those applications in the given order e.g. criteria 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. The Supplementary Information Form referred to in criterion 5) (Faith Criterion) should be completed by the Priest/Minister and returned to the school as described in criterion 5) save for the deadline will be the same deadline as given for the Sixth Form Application Form, which is midday on the last Friday of the February Holiday.
We received no responses, either positive or negative, to this consultation. Our Admissions Policy for September 2021 can be found at the top of this page, along with our Admissions Policy for the previous year.
