Offer of a secondary school place September 2017
What to do with your offer
Applicants who applied online will get an email from eAdmissions of the result of the application from 5pm on the 1st March 2017. Those applicants who completed paper applications will be sent a letter posted on 1st March 2017 by first class post.
How do I accept my school place?
The email from eAdmissions will tell you what to do, simply follow the instruction to accept your child’s school place directly online.
Those of you who receive the outcome by post must complete and return the reply slip enclosed. Remember that either way you must accept the offer by Wednesday 15th March 2017. If you don’t do this, we may withdraw the offer. We also need to know if your circumstances have changed and you no longer want the place
What happens if I don't get a place in any of my preferred schools?
Hackney Learning Trust will ask you to consider Schools that still have places available. You will need to rank your new preferences in order of 1st, 2nd and 3rd on the reply form. You will only get one offer of a school place. If you need to discuss your situation in more detail, you can contact either the Admissions Team on 020 8820 7489/7247 for advice about your options, including details of available schools outside Hackney
Will my child be on the application waiting list for the schools I do not get a place at?
If you have been offered a place at a lower preference school, your child will automatically be added to the waiting lists of any Hackney schools you have ranked higher on your application form. If you have been refused a place at all Hackney schools you listed on your application form, your child will automatically be added to the waiting lists of all of them. Your child’s position on the lists will be worked out according to the admissions criteria for each school and can go up or down depending on whether other children have been added to the lists. Hackney Learning Trust will continue to offer places and maintain the lists until the end of August 2017. Parents will need to confirm by 1 September 2017 if they wish their child to remain on the waiting lists. From this date, waiting lists will be maintained in accordance with the secondary school in-year admissions process. All secondary schools will inform us when a vacancy becomes available. The next child on the waiting list will be offered a place, and the Admissions Team will send an offer letter to the parent.
How do I appeal?
If you believe there are exceptional reasons why your child can only attend a particular school, you can appeal against the refusal of a place at that school. (Appeal forms below) Please note that very few appeals are successful. You must complete and return an appeal form by the date specified on the individual form.
You can get independent advice about appeals from:
