In-Year Admissions

The number of in-year admissions has continued to increase.  We have a range of procedures to ensure that the transfer is a positive and happy experience.  We like new students to visit Court Fields with their parents before their starting date and have a tour of the School.  Special arrangements will be made to help and support new students during the first few months at the school.  Our experience is that students settle quickly and happily.  Please contact Mrs Emma Lilley on 01823 664201 or SCH.552@educ.somerset.gov.uk to arrange a visit.

In-Year Applications

Applications will be considered by Governors and you will be notified of their decision within 10 days of receipt of the application form, which is available from the School Office.  Please contact 01823 664201 or SCH.552@educ.somerset.gov.uk to request a form.

In-Year Appeals Procedure for 2021-22

We currently employ the services of Somerset County Council to process appeals and hold Independent Appeals Panel on our behalf.  For details about the appeals procedure please contact Somerset County Council’s Admissions & Entitlements Team.

The timetable

National Offer Day 1 March 2022

It’s important that you read the School Admission Appeals Booklet before you fill in the appeal form.

Either complete the appeal form online or download and complete the paper form and ensure it is received by 29 March 2022. Appeals will be heard as soon as reasonably practicable and we aim to do this within 40 school days of this date wherever possible.

  • You will receive at least 14 days’ notice of your appeal hearing, unless you want to waive this right by ticking the appropriate box on the appeal form.
  • You must send any additional evidence before the final deadline, which is 7 days before the appeal hearing. The panel will decide whether to consider at the hearing any information or evidence received after that date.
  • Decision letters will be sent within 7 days of the hearing.

 

For applications received after 31 October 2021 but before 21 March 2022, outcomes will be sent on 3 May 2022 and appeal forms must be received by 7 June 2022. Appeals will be heard as soon as reasonably practicable and we aim to do this within 40 school days wherever possible.

For applications received after 21 March, the appeal will be heard as soon as reasonably practicable and we aim to do this within 30 school days of receipt of the appeal form wherever possible. This follows the same timetable as in-year appeals.
