Lynch Hill Enterprise Academy is a learning environment at the heart of its community. We promote care, respect and expect high standards in all aspects of academy life; our admissions policy reflects these aspirations.

The Academy has 180 places for admission into Year 7 in September 2020.  All applicants will be admitted if fewer than 180 applications are received.  If over 180 applications are received, the academy will use the admission criteria published in the admissions policy.

An application for admission is made using the common application form (CAF) which is available from Slough Borough Council, which needs to be completed and submitted to Slough Borough Council.  Admissions to Year 7 are administered by the school admissions department in the Slough Borough Council.  You should complete the Common Application Form provided to you by your child’s primary school in Year 6.  The closing date for applications is 31st October in the year preceding entry to Lynch Hill Enterprise Academy.

Applications for in-year admissions should be made by completing a Common Application Form (CAF) provided by the Local Authority.  Copies of the form are available from the Admissions Team at Slough Borough Council online at:

If there are no spaces available at the time of application, the child’s name will be added to a waiting list for the relevant year group.  When a space becomes available, it will be filled by one of the pupils on the waiting list in accordance with the oversubscription criteria listed in section 6.2 of the school’s admissions policy. 

If the application for a place at the school is unsuccessful, the parent/carer will be informed by Slough Borough Council’s Admissions Team why the admission was refused and will be given information about the process for hearing appeals.  If a parent/carer wishes to appeal, s/he must set out the grounds for the appeal in writing to the appeals clerk and send it to the following address:
