Uxbridge High School has one main year for admissions. Children are admitted into the National Curriculum Year 7 at the age of 11. Some places may become available during the year. These places will be offered and filled from our waiting list in line with our admissions criteria. Students are admitted into the Sixth Form each year at the age of 16+.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE DEADLINE FOR SUPPLEMENTARY FORMS FOR THE APTITUDE CRITERIA OF 10TH OCTOBER HAS NOW PASSED
We shall admit pupils at the age of 11, without reference to their ability or aptitude. There will normally be 230 places for students in September of each year.
If there are more than 230 applications for places we shall use the following criteria, in the order shown, to decide which children to admit:
1. A looked after child (as defined by the Children Act 1989) or a child who was previously looked after, but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption residence, or a special guardianship order.
2. Children who currently have a brother or sister* as a pupil on roll at Uxbridge High School and who would reasonably be expected to still be attending at Uxbridge High School at the time of admission.
Football – Children selected on the basis of aptitude for football as measured by the school’s aptitude assessment procedures (working in conjunction with Brentford Football Club). Priority will be given to a maximum of 10 students on the basis of aptitude in football.
Music – Children selected on the basis of aptitude for music as measured by the school’s aptitude assessment procedures (working in conjunction with Hillingdon Music Service). Priority will be given to a maximum of 10 students on the basis of aptitude in music.
Parents applying under the Aptitude criteria must contact the school for a Supplementary Information Form, which includes further details regarding the aptitude assessment process. See Links in right hand panel above.
4. Children living nearest the School (measured in a straight line from the School Office to their parents’ permanent home as set by Ordnance Survey points of reference**).
* This does not include cousins or other family members who live in the same household, but will include stepbrothers/sisters and adopted or foster children.
** This must be that of the child’s permanent home with his/her parents or legal guardians.
If two or more children have equal priority after applying all other criteria then the distance criterion set out in 4 above will be applied. Where the applicants cannot be differentiated when the distance criterion is applied, a process of random allocation will be applied.
The procedure for deciding which children to admit will be carried out by Uxbridge High School and you will be notified of the result of your application by your Local Authority Admissions Team.
Should you apply for but not be offered a place for your child at Uxbridge High School, you can request appeals information to be sent to you after you are notified of the result of your application.
An Appeal Pack should be requested from Uxbridge High School by 29th March 2013.
Appeals will be accepted after this deadline, but they may be heard at a later date.
