In Year Admissions

Applications for In-Year admissions are made in the same way as those made during the normal admissions round. If a place is available and there is no waiting list, then the Governors will communicate their offer of a place to the family. If more applications are received than there are places available, then applications will be ranked by the governing body in accordance with the oversubscription criteria without reference to banding.

A letter of refusal will be sent by Hackney Education who will give the reason and offer you on your right of appeal. You will also be offered the opportunity of being placed on a waiting list. This waiting list will be maintained by the governing body in the order of the oversubscription criteria (as detailed above) and not in the order in which the applications are received. Names are removed from the list at the end of each academic year. When a place becomes available the governing body will decide who is at the top of the list so that the parent/carer can be informed that the School is making an offer.

All applications for an ‘in year’ place must be made through Hackney Education.  Although the Urswick School is its own Admission Authority, all applications must be made through the co-ordinated scheme administered by Hackney Education using the link below.
