Joining William Ellis School
Please take a look at the short films on our ‘Window into our school’ page – click here to see the school community in action.
IN YEAR ADMISSIONS
In year applications are made directly to the school. If a place is available and there is no waiting list, the governors will offer a place to the family. If more applications are received than places available, applications will be ranked by the governing body in accordance with the oversubscription criteria set out in the policy (with the exception of criterion 4). If a place cannot be offered, then you may ask us for the reasons and you will be informed of your right to appeal. You will be offered the opportunity of being placed on a waiting list. This waiting list will be maintained by the governing body in order of the oversubscription criteria and not in the order in which the applications are received. Termly reviews and updates to our waiting lists will be made by the school. When a place becomes available, the governing body will decide who is at the top of the list and they will inform the parents that the school is making an offer. In accordance with statutory requirements, Camden’s Admissions Team will be notified of all applications and offers made to/for the school.
IN YEAR APPLICATIONS
To apply for a place after the start of the school year, or for any other year group, please complete the school’s In Year Application form below.
If you have any queries you may contact Admissions staff by email: email@example.com
Depending on whether places are available, you will be contacted to arrange a meeting with the Head of Year or informed where your son is placed on the waiting list.
ADMISSION OF CHILDREN OUTSIDE NORMAL AGE RANGE
In some situations it may be appropriate for a student to be placed with a cohort outside their normal age range. Decisions about this will consider the parents’ views and the individual circumstances and will be made at the discretion of the governing body.
APPLICATIONS FROM OVERSEAS
The school accepts applications from overseas. For the purposes of oversubscription criterion 6 we will accept a future address should the applicant have evidence of one.
William Ellis School is part of the LaSWAP sixth form consortium made up of four schools: La Sainte Union, William Ellis, Acland Burghley and Parliament Hill schools. Applications to sixth form are made via the LaSWAP office. Their contact details can be found on their website: www.laswap.camden.sch.uk
