  • You must submit an application form to your Local Education Authority if applying online by 31 October 2020. A place at any secondary school can only be offered if an application has been received.
  • Think carefully about the order in which you place your chosen schools on the form.  You should enter your most preferred school first on the list. Please remember to enter the full name of Harris Girls' Academy Bromley, There are several different Harris Academies and an entry of simply “Harris Academy” will be ignored.
  • BANDING TEST DAY is on Friday 11 December 2020 . Your daughter will only need to sit ONE test, even if you have listed more than one Harris Academies on your CAF form as we share our results.
  • Supplementary Form: you will only need to fill and return this form to us by Monday 16 November 2020 if your child has Special Education Needs; please see below to download the form.
  • Be sure to include at least 3 different schools on your preference form.

In March 2021, the local authority will notify you of the school where your child has been offered a place.  If you are happy with the offer, you MUST ACCEPT this place by returning the acceptance form to Admissions at the Academy.

In-Year Admissions 

If you are looking for a place in Harris Girls' Academy Bromley because you have recently moved into the area, or your child is at another secondary school and you feel that a change of school would benefit their education and/or general well-being, you are entitled to apply for a school place. 

Since September 2013, the law allows you to apply directly to Harris Girls' Academy Bromley.  Please contact Admissions at the Academy, (contact details above) to request an in-year admission form, or download the form (see below). Please note that there is no guarantee that a place will be available, but you have the right of appeal if you are refused a place.


For Parents who wish to appeal - Year 7 Admissions

2021-22

Any parent(s) wishing to appeal against the Academy’s decision on admissions, for any year group, should complete an Appeal Form (see below) stating the reason for the appeal, based on the published Admissions Criteria.

If you wish to appeal you must contact Admissions at the Academy who will send you an appeals form to complete.

Completed forms should be sent to the Clerk to the Appeal Panel at: Harris Girls' Academy Bromley, Lennard Road, Beckenham, London, BR3 1QR

Completed appeal forms must be received by the Academy by the closing date 29 March 2021 at 5pm. Please note: the academy does not provide help with appeals.

The appeals will be heard, in private, by an Independent Appeals Panel. The Clerk to the Appeal Panel will make an appointment within a reasonable time; the provisional dates have been booked to be during the months of April/May 2021. 

Appeals may be made in English or the Parents/Carers’ first language.

Only one appeal per application is allowed.

Appeals are conducted in person, and you may bring a friend.

Appeals must be made by 29 March 2021.

Appeals lodged after these dates will be heard within 40 school days of the appeal deadline or 30 school days of being lodged, whichever is the later date.

Additional Supporting Information

If an appellant wishes to submit further evidence, which was not included with their initial appeal, they should ensure this is received at least seven clear working days (not counting the day of postage or the hearing) in advance of your appeal.

Only a short document, such as a doctor’s letter not previously available, will be accepted up to five clear working days prior to the hearing. Any additional evidence or information received after this deadline will not be circulated and may not be considered at the hearing.


The Appeal Hearing

The Academy will arrange for an Independent Appeals Panel to consider the Academy's reasons for refusal and your reasons for wanting to attend the Academy.  

The Panel will consist of 3 people (2 will have education experience and one will be an independent person with no education experience).

The Panel will consider the case put forward by you and the Academy. They must consider the admission arrangements for the Academy and the reasons why you want to attend that particular school.  The Panel must exercise its discretion by balancing the weight of your argument (for wanting to attend) against the Academy’s reasons for refusal i.e. the prejudice that one more student would cause to the education of the students already offered and the Health and Safety of all the students already attending the Academy, also taking into account the Academy's published admission arrangements.  

The decision of the Independent Appeals Panel is binding on the admissions authority and the Parents.

Appellants will be sent notification of their appeal hearing at least 10 clear school days in advance of the hearing.

Appellants will be sent a copy of the school's case at least seven clear working days in advance of the hearing.
