Mid Term Admission Arrangements

Should you wish your child to join Walthamstow Academy please note that all admissions are dealt with on our behalf by the London Borough of Waltham Forest Admissions Service.

All in year applications will only be put on the waiting list if the parents request this on the reply slip, if the year group is full.  If they do not request to be placed on the waiting list, we do not add them on the waiting list. However, if they state they wish to be placed on the waiting list, we will input this on our system and they will then be ranking by the over subscription criteria. When a space become available the child with the highest preference will be allocated accordingly. All parents are advised that the waiting list is a fluid list and can change any time of the day due to new applications that come in and may be ranked higher than those on the waiting list. All parents have the right to appeal once in each academic year.

This applies to students joining the school mid-year admissions for any year group, except Years 12 & 13 where they must be made directly to the Academy. (See Sixth Form applications page here)

Full details and advice on Academy admissions can be found on the London Borough of Waltham Forest Admissions Service website.
