Year 7: Admissions September 2019

Applications for Year 7 2019 are now closed

The deadline for applications to be made with the Local Authority has now passed. If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s application please contact your Local Authority. If you have a child who will be 11 by 31 August 2019 and you have not yet made an application for secondary school you should contact your Local Authority immediately.

All children who list Sandwell Academy as a preference with their Local Authority will be invited to sit a Non Verbal Reasoning Test. This is not a pass or fail test. There is not a separate registration form for the NVR test. Children must sit this test to be considered for a place at Sandwell Academy, testing will take place 24 and 25 November 2018.

If you have not received an invitation to a testing session by Wednesday 21 November 2018 you must contact the Academy, due to the large number of applications the Academy is unable to check that each individual applicant has received their invitation to a testing session. It will be assumed that applicants who fail to attend their scheduled session no longer wish to be considered for admission to Sandwell Academy for Year 7 2019.

If you wish for your child to be assessed for Sporting Aptitude, which is an optional test, you will need to complete and return the Sandwell Academy Sporting Aptitude Registration Form by 12.00pm on Tuesday 11 December 2018. Early Sporting Aptitude testing has already taken place. Later Sporting Aptitude testing will take place Saturday 15 December 2018.
