Our determined Admission Arrangements for 2022-23 are available to view. Please click here.

Published admission number 2021: 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 2022 you should apply to your home council by 31 October 2022 at  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 1st March 2022.

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, should Covid restrictions permit. 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.
