King Edward VI Handsworth Wood Girls’ Academy Admissions Policy can be viewed here:
Where the number of applications for admission exceeds the number of
places available at the school, places are offered as follows:
Within each of these categories, priority is given to those who live nearest the school, calculated on the basis of a straight-line measurement between the child’s home address and the school.
Notes: Any child with an Educational Health & Care Plan or a statement of special educational needs (SEN) is required to be admitted to the school that is named in their statement. This gives any such child overall priority for admission to the named school. This is not an over subscription criterion.
Applications made outside the normal admissions round (in-year admissions) will be made directly to the school. Birmingham City Council will provide an ‘In Year’ application form for parents to complete.
We also require proof of your current address dated within the last 3 months, a copy of your daughter passport and your daughter’s birth certificate. Please send all completed forms to email@example.com,uk
King Edward VI Handsworth Wood Girls’ Academy abides by the procedures regarding pupils who are granted places at the school following an appeal. Such pupils are welcomed into the school community.
Further guidance on Admissions and Appeals can be found in ‘Secondary Education Opportunities for your child in Birmingham’.
Families with children due to start secondary school in September 2024 (i.e. those children born between 1 September 2012 and 31 August 2013) are now able to apply online for secondary school places.
The deadline for applications is 31 October 2023 and places will be offered on 1 March 2024.
It is particularly important that families carefully consider schools’ admission criteria and name at least one school on their application where their child would have been offered a place in previous years.
