Whilst we have chosen to become our Own Admissions Authority to streamline and speed up the process of transferring schools mid-year, "admissions to school as part of the normal admissions round" (in this case, children transferring from Year 6 to Year 7) are handled through the local authority's coordinated scheme. Details of the Year 6 to 7 admissions process can be found here: http://www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/learning/schools/admissions
Applications must be made by 31 October. After that, you most likely will not hear anything until the beginning of March, when the Local Authority writes to all parents to say where they have been allocated a place.
We will write to all our new parents at the start of March and invite you back to the Elizabethan to find out more about your new school and ask any initial questions you may have.
Many of our students come from our nine official feeders, although we are receiving increasing numbers of applications from outside our catchment. In fact, our Year 7 is often drawn from up to thirty different primary schools!
Students will have the chance to get to know one another during Transition Week at the start of July, when we welcome all our new students to our school. We also offer a thriving Summer School, which is another very good opportunity to make new friends, and details of this are usually sent out during the summer term.
As an ArtsMark school, we have include a talent in the performing arts as one of our over-subscription criteria.
