Mid-Year Admissions

Thank you for your interest in Sandwell Academy Admissions, for our current Years 7 – 10*.

Currently, there are no spaces available in any of our year groups .

Lengthy waiting lists for each year group are already in place. If your child is already on the waiting list and you would like an update on their current position please email Miss Green, Admissions Officer, with your child's name, date of birth and address: hgreen@sandwellacademy.com

If an application has not previously been made for your child, you could complete a Mid-Year Transfer Request form. However , it must be stressed that it is very unlikely that an application of this nature would be successful as there are currently no spaces available at Sandwell Academy.

In Sandwell, Mid-Year Transfer Requests would usually be made through the child's current Secondary School and then processed by your Local Authority. Sandwell Academy does not have its own transfer request form. All applications for a change of school must be made through the Local Authority.

If a student is refused a Mid-Year Transfer Request, they will be asked if they would like to join the waiting list. The student will need to complete a Non Verbal Reasoning Test, which all applicants are required to complete as per our Rules of Admission, before they can be placed on the waiting list. Non Verbal Reasoning Testing takes place once every academic year. Students can then join the bottom of the waiting list for their town and band.

Should a student leave Sandwell Academy, a place will be offered to the child who is at the top of the waiting list for the same town and band.

Should you require further assistance in applying for a change of school, it is recommended that you contact your Local Authority for further information.

*Sandwell Academy strongly advises against a change of schools for a student in Year 11.
