Admissions to Year 7 from Primary School
Co-ordinated Admission of Students (with Beechen Cliff School)
Students will be admitted at age 11 without reference to ability or aptitude. The number of intended admissions for the year commencing 1 September 2017 will be 210.
Hayesfield is an Academy and admission is the responsibility of the Governors. The Local Authority (LA) application form must be completed and returned to the LA by the closing date. An on-line LA application can also be made.
Where applications for admission exceed the number of places available, all applications will be considered equally and the following criteria will be applied at the closing date for applications to be submitted to the Local Authority in the order set out below, to decide which children to admit.
- Looked after Children or a child who was previously looked after but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, child arrangement or special guardianship order.
- Where the girl has a brother or sister, half brother or half sister, or step brother or step sister residing at the same address and currently attending Hayesfield School and who will be in attendance at the time of admission.
- Daughters of members of staff who have been employed at the school for 2 years.
- Up to 12 places to be allocated on the basis of sporting excellence.*
- Within the Greater Bath Consortium boundary, (as defined by B&NES LA), after the allocation of places under criteria 1 to 4, 80% of the remaining places will be allocated to girls living in the Greater Bath Consortium. Those living closer to the School, as measured in a direct line on a map from the address point of the child’s home address to the address point of the Brougham Hayes Campus, will be accorded higher priority.
- 20% of remaining places will be allocated to girls living beyond the Greater Bath Consortium boundary. Girls living closer to the School, as measured in a direct line on a map from the address point of the child’s home address to the address point of the Brougham Hayes Campus, will be accorded the higher priority. Measurements will be determined using the Local Authority’s GIS computerised mapping system.
* A completed form from the primary or prep school or from the coaching staff will be required.
Multiple births – In the event of one place remaining for offer, the school would admit over the number to ensure that the siblings were able to be educated at the same school. If a place would be available for a sibling in Beechen Cliff, then a place would be offered over the number to ensure that the siblings were educated at schools conveniently situated.
To be considered under the above criteria parents/carers must have named the school as a preference. Under the above criteria all preferences are considered equally. If a pupil qualifies for more than one school they will be offered their highest preference as stated on their application form.
Please note that the home address is the address at which the prospective student normally resides, at the time of application. The School reserves the right to seek verification of this address. The School retains the right to withdraw the offer of a place, if it has been made on the basis of false or misleading information.
Late applications will be made via the Local Authority who will inform the school after all on-time applications have been made. Late applications will then be admitted, if there is a place, or added to the waiting list in criteria order.
A list will be kept for a full academic year in accordance with the above criteria. Any late applications, stating Hayesfield as a preference or change of preference due to changed circumstances, will be added at the appropriate position. Places will be offered in order from the waiting list.
Students who are the subject of a direction by a Local Authority to admit, or who are allocated to a school in accordance with a Fair Access Protocol, must take precedence over those on a waiting list.
Statement of Special Educational Need or an Education Health and Care Plan [EHC]
There is a different procedure for the admission to school for children with a Statement of Special Educational Need or an Education Health and Care Plan [EHC]. It is administered by the Local Authority (LA) in whose area the family lives. The LA is responsible for issuing the Statement and consulting parents and the Governing Body of Hayesfield School, before the school is named in the Statement. If the school is named in the statement, the child will be admitted.
