When becoming an academy in 2012, the Elizabethan made a commitment to remain an inclusive school which serves its local community. Academies manage their own admissions but are still required to work to the same Admissions Code as maintained schools so that the system is fair and parents can choose for their child to come to a good school.
We have become increasingly popular in recent years, with more applications for Year 7 places and a large number of parents applying mid-year (either because they have moved to the area and have chosen the Elizabethan as their school of choice or because they are dissatisfied with their current school).
We are currently consulting on changes to our procedures for the admission of students outside of the normal round (in year admissions). See our consultation document below:
