Academy Admissions


Lead Admissions Officer: Katie Day
Administration of Admissions: Andy Friend


“Applications for a Primary School place at HPAKH are processed centrally by the London Borough of Bromley (LBB) Admissions Team. Where a child is the subject of a Statement of Special Educational Needs where the Academy is named in the Statement, he or she will be admitted first and under different regulations. When the Academy is oversubscribed, applications will be processed in order of the following criteria:

  1. Looked after and previously looked after children
  2. Children with a medical or social need with evidence from a doctor, social worker or other relevant independent professional
  3. Siblings of children already in school
  4. Proximity - Children who live closest to the school ”


Reception Intake

Children start Reception Class from the September after their fourth birthday. Applications can be made between September and January for a place the following September (closing date applies). If you are a LBB resident, to apply for a place in Reception at HPAKH you will need to complete an Application Form online available from the LBB. If you are unable to complete an online application you can collect an Application Form from the LBB main reception at Bromley Civic Centre (Monday-Friday 08.30-17.00). If you live outside of the LBB you must apply to your local authority.


Other In-Year Groups

For any other year group, applications must again be made via London Borough of Bromley. In year application forms are available from the Civic Centre.

This application process is for all applicants, from any local authority, to apply for a place at HPAKH from current Reception through to Year 6. All applications must be submitted to LBB, Civic Centre, Bromley.


Nursery Class

HPAKH Nursery class offers 52 places (26 in the morning, 26 in the afternoon). This is a mixture of full time (30 hours) and part time (15 hours) places, funded.  Children can start in Nursery the term after their third birthday, if places are available.
Applications for a place in our Nursery can be made directly to the school, by collecting an application form from the school office and returning it directly to the school once completed.


The Admissions Procedure

Once we are able to offer a child a place at HPAKH, a member of the school office staff will call the child’s Parent/Carer and invite them into school for a meeting with the Principal. During this time your child will meet his/her teacher and have a tour of our school. Parents will be given an induction pack containing some information about the school and enrolment forms that must be completed before your child can start. Parents/Carers of pupils who are eligible for free school meals will be advised on how to apply for free school meals.

Please note that there is no guarantee that a place will be available, but you have the right of appeal if you are refused a place.



For Parents/Carers who Wish to Appeal

Parent(s) wishing to appeal against the Academy’s decision on admissions for any year group, should complete an Appeal Form (see below) stating the reason for the appeal, based on the published Admissions Criteria. Completed forms should be sent to the Clerk to the Appeal Panel at:

Harris Primary Academy Kent House, High Street, Penge, London, SE20 7QR

Completed appeal forms must be received by the Academy by the closing date 30th April 2019 at 5pm. The appeals will be heard, in private, by an Independent appeal Panel. The Clerk to the Appeal Panel will make an appointment within a reasonable time;

  • Appeals may be made in English or the Parents’/Carers’ first language
  • Only one appeal per application is allowed
  • Appeals are conducted in person, and you may bring a friend


The Appeal Hearing

The Academy will arrange for an Independent Appeals Panel to consider the Academy's reasons for refusal and your reasons for wanting to attend the Academy. The Panel will consist of 3 people (2 will have education experience and one will be an independent person with no education experience). The Panel will consider the case put forward by you and the Academy. They must consider the admission arrangements for the Academy and the reasons why you want to attend that particular school. The Panel must exercise its discretion by balancing the weight of your argument (for wanting to attend) against the Academy’s reasons for refusal i.e. the prejudice that one more student would cause to the education of the students already offered and the Health and Safety of all the students already attending the Academy, also taking into account the Academy's published admission arrangements.  

The decision of the Independent Appeals Panel is binding on the admissions authority and the Parents.

A link to the Admissions Appeals Timetable can be found here.


Visits to the School

We welcome visits from prospective Parents/Carers.  Please contact the school for details of our Open Mornings that take place during the autumn term.

Our admissions policy will remain as above for the academic years  2017-2018 and 2018-2019
