Year 7 Admissions Information:

Broadwater has a planned admission number of 120 places that includes 6 places for the Language Resource. In 2021 we will be taking a bulge class of 30 in order to cater for the increasing demand of first preferences.  The closing date for applications is 31st October 2020. To apply for a Year 7 place for September 2021, please click HERE.  Places for Year 7 after 1st September become In Year Admissions. For more information regarding the admissions process, please watch our Admissions video below. 

 

Admission during the year (In Year Applications):

Broadwater School is part of Surrey County Council's Co-ordinated Admissions Scheme for In-Year Admissions.  Applications for admission to Year 7 after 1st September and for admission into Years 8 to 11 must be made to the Local Authority in which the school is situated on an In-Year Application Form.  If you wish to apply for a place at Broadwater School, you must name the school as one of your preferences on the application form and return the form to Surrey Admissions.

Where there are more applicants than places available, the school will maintain a waiting list according to the oversubscription criteria detailed in the school’s admission arrangements without regard to the date the application was received or when a child’s name was added to the waiting list.

Positions on the waiting lists may go down as well as up.  This is because other children might be added to the waiting list who have a greater priority for a place against the school’s admission criteria; for example, when new families move into the area or when other families who had not previously named Broadwater as a preference, ask to go on the waiting list after the initial allocations date.

Proposed Admission Arrangements for entry in September 2022/23

In accordance with the School Admissions Code 2014, the Greenshaw Learning Trust has consulted on the admissions arrangements for Broadwater School for entry in September 2022/23. The consultation closed in December 2020.

The main changes are:

  • The inclusion of a priority for exceptional social and medical applications for schools where it was not previously included
  • A Supplementary Information Form (SIF) for all exceptional social and medical applications (all schools)
  • Alignment in the order of priorities within admission arrangements
  • Alignment in criteria definitions

Please click HERE to view the determined admission arrangements for the school for 2022-23.

Appeals:

Parents have a statutory right of appeal against the decision not to offer a place at a school, under the School Standards & Framework Act 1998.

Appeals will be heard by an independent appeals panel established by the Greenshaw Learning Trust to hear the appeal. The panel will decide whether to uphold or dismiss the appeal. Where a panel upholds the appeal the school is required to admit the child.

Appeals for entry in September 2021 must be received by Friday 23 April 2021 at the latest if these are to be heard by the Independent Appeals Panel by Friday 25 June 2021.  Appeals received after Friday 23rd April where possible, will be heard by Friday 25 June 2021; however, this will depend on the date the appeal is lodged and cannot be guaranteed. 

Parents/carers wishing to appeal must send a written request for an appeals pack to admissionappeals@greenshawlearningtrust.co.uk or:
