Park Hall Academy is consulting on its Admission Arrangements for 2020-21 from 20th December 2018 to 31st January 2019. You can find a copy here If you have any comments or views you should send them to Mr B Bohanna Chair of Governors, at firstname.lastname@example.org or to Park Hall Academy, Water Orton Road, Castle Bromwich, B36 9HF by 5pm on 31 January 2019.
The consultation closes on 31st January 2019 following which our Governors will meet and consider all responses at the same time. They will then determine Park Hall’s Admission Arrangements for 2020-21, which must be done by 28th February 2019, having taken into consideration all responses. The determined Admission Arrangements will be displayed on our website and also sent to Solihull Local Authority for displaying on their website.
We are proposing to amend the current priority 6 ‘children of staff’ as follows:
- Currently – this priority is applicable to staff employed at Park Hall Academy.
- Proposal – this priority will be applicable to staff employed by Arden Multi Academy Trust.
Please note that all other priorities remain unchanged from the current Admission Arrangements.
Published admission number 2019: 240
Applications for all school places must be made on the application form provided by the parent/carer’s home local authority, with the opportunity to nominate schools, ranked in order of preference.
Alternatively, if you would like to apply online for a place in Year 7 starting in September 2019 you should apply to your home council by 31 October 2018 at www.Solihull.gov.uk.
Contact School Admissions if you miss the closing date.
Once completed, the application form (including if you apply online) must be received by your home Local Authority by their closing date. The home Local Authority will notify parents of the outcome of their application for a place. Letters offering places will be posted on 1 March.
Applications are welcomed from all who wish their children to attend Park Hall regardless of their home Local Authority. Students and their parent[s]/carer[s] who are considering applying are warmly invited to visit the School. The school holds an Open Evening for Year 6 students and their parent[s]/carer[s] in the September of the year prior to intended admission. The School Leadership Team will also be pleased to provide information and answer questions by letter or telephone, or to meet parents to discuss possible applications.
Experience suggests that there will often be more applications than places. The Governors have a Published Admission Limit of 240 places for Year 7 and for 10 external students in Year 12 and Year 13. The following procedure for applications is designed to ensure that the Governors' Admissions Policy is applied as fairly and consistently as possible.
