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.
The school maintains a waiting list. Applications are ranked according to the published over-subscription criteria. The waiting list is held for one academic year. Length of time on the waiting list is not used for selection in the case of over-subscription.
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 31 October in the year preceding entry to Lynch Hill.
All other applications are made using an ‘in year’ admission form.
This will be accepted at any time through the year. Alternatively, an application via Slough Borough Council is equally acceptable. These applications are processed by the school.
Looked after children, previously looked after children, and those allocated a place at the school in accordance with a Fair Access Protocol take precedence over those on a waiting list.
In all cases, where a decision has been made to refuse a place at the school parents have the right of appeal. All appeals need to be made in writing to the Appeals Clerk and will be considered by an independent panel.
