Year 7 Admissions 2024

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 2024 and you have not yet made an application for secondary school you should contact your Local Authority immediately.

All children who have listed Sandwell Academy as a preference with their Local Authority will be automatically invited to sit a Non Verbal Reasoning Test. This is not a pass or fail test. There is not a separate registration form for this test. Children must sit this test to be considered for a place at Sandwell Academy, testing will take place Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 November 2023.

If you have not received an invitation to a testing session by Wednesday 15 November 2023 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 2024.

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 Wednesday 6 December 2023. Early Sporting Aptitude testing has already taken place. Later Sporting Aptitude testing will take place Saturday 9 December 2023.

Parents/ Carers will be notified of the outcome of their secondary school application on Tuesday 1 March 2024 by email.
