Academy Admissions

Back to Key Information Menu

The white paper ‘The Importance of Teaching’ outlined the intention to simplify the School Admissions and School Admission Appeals Codes (the ‘Codes’) so that it is easier for schools, academies and parents to understand and act upon, while maintaining fairness as the guiding principle. On 1 December 2011 the Department laid the revised Codes before Parliament, as required under section 85 of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998. Subject to the views of Parliament, these Codes will came into force on 1 February 2012, affecting the 2013/14 admissions intake.

Listed below are our Admissions Policies which comply to the above, and stipulate the criteria for applying to Westminster Academy. Arrangements for Admissions Appeals are contained within our Admissions Policy, should you wish to make an appeal against an Admissions decision.
