We are so sorry but we are having technical difficulties and appear to have lost our Webinar section on Zoom, which means the meeting planned for Sat 10 Oct, 10am cannot take place. Very sorry. We will host another Webinar next Saturday (17th) at 10am so you don’t miss out.

Academy Admissions

Welcome to the Harris Academy Bermondsey admissions information page.

Our full policy, with details of our admissions criteria, can be downloaded at the bottom of this page. Details of our open day dates for September and October 2020 can be found here.

Academy admissions contact details

Applications for Year 7 places should be made online at:
https://www.southwark.gov.uk/schools-and-education/school-admissions/secondary-admissions

For other years please contact Vicki Inglott
Telephone: 020 7237 9316
Email: vicki.inglott@harrisbermondsey.org.uk
Address: Harris Academy Bermondsey, 55 Southwark Park Road, London, SE16 3TZ


Year 7 applications

Harris Academy Bermondsey will admit at least 180 girls in Year 7.  

Applications for Year 7 places should be made online at https://www.southwark.gov.uk/schools-and-education/school-admissions/secondary-admissions/applying-for-a-secondary-school-place

If the number of applications exceeds 180, girls with statements of Special Educational Needs in which the Harris Academy Bermondsey is named will be admitted before others.

For the remaining places Harris Academy Bermondsey will seek to ensure that the ability profile of the intake reflects the range of all applicants by employing a Fair Banding System. All applicants must take a non-verbal reasoning (NVR) test that places them in a rank order. We will then place all applicants in one of five ability bands, each containing, as far as possible, the same number of children based on their performance in the NVR test. 

Within each of the five bands applicants will be considered in accordance with the criteria below, applied in order:

a) girls looked after or formerly looked after;

b) girls for whom admission to a specific school is essential because of special circumstances, to do with significant medical needs, social needs or special educational needs;

c) girls’ proximity to the school using straight-line, computer calculated measurements;

d) girls whose siblings currently attend the school and who will continue to do so on the date of admission.

For parents/carers who wish to appeal

All applicants will know the outcome of their application for a secondary school place on 2 March 2020. 

Parents have the right to appeal to an independent panel if they are dissatisfied with an admission decision of Harris Academy Bermondsey. The closing date for appeals for primary to secondary transfer is now 30 April 2020 and appeals are due to be heard, depending on the Covid-19 situation, in late June/beginning of July.

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

Parents/carers will be sent notification of the appeal hearing at least ten clear school days in advance of the hearing. They will also be sent a copy of the school's case at least seven clear working days in advance of the hearing.

Additional supporting information

If a parent/carer 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.
