Year 7 Admissions – September 2023

If you have a child who will be 11 by 31 August 2023 you should register with your Local Authority and list Sandwell Academy as a preference. Online applications will open during the Summer of 2022, at this time you should make your application with your Local Authority and check with their Admissions Service for further details. Please ensure you use a working email address. The deadline for applications is usually 31 October 2022.

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 Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 November 2022.

All invitations will be emailed at the beginning of November 2022, if you do not receive an invitation to a testing session byWednesday 16 November 2022 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 2023.

Sporting Aptitude Testing, which is an optional test, will be taking place on Saturday 15 October 2022.

Parents/Carers will be notified of the outcome of the Sporting Aptitude test on Monday 24 October 2022. While this will not guarantee an applicant a place it will allow parents/carers time to make an informed choice of school before the closing date for secondary school applications on 31 October. The Sporting Aptitude Registration Form can be found below, the deadline to complete the form is 12.00pm on Wednesday 5 October 2022.
