Year 7 Admissions - September 2013
Applications for admission to Year 7 2013 must be made on the common application form enclosed with the Local Authority’s booklet and also on St. Wilfrid’s own form between 1st September 2012 and 31st October 2012. Failure to complete both application forms will result in your application not being considered.
Parents must also complete the supplementary form if they wish their application to be considered against the faith criteria.
Letters informing parents whether or not their child has been allocated a place will be sent out by the Local Authority on 1st March 2013.
Year 7 Appeals – September 2013
Where the Governors are unable to offer a place at the Academy because it is oversubscribed, parents/guardians have the right to appeal against the decision to an independent panel.
You can request an appeal form from the Clerk to the Governors by phoning 01254 604176, stating clearly the child's name, address and telephone number. Alternatively, a form may also be collected from the Academy during school hours.
We must receive your completed appeal form by Friday 30th March 2013. Failure to appeal by this date may result in your appeal not being heard.
Parents will then be invited to submit their case at an appeal hearing which will be held on one of the following dates; Wednesday 1st May 2013, Thursday 2nd May 2013 and Friday 3rd May 2013.
Parents/guardians will normally receive 10 days notice of the place and time of the hearing. The outcome of individual appeals will not be determined until all the appeals have been heard, after which the Clerk to the Appeal Panel will notify the parents/guardians in writing.
