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.

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

Completed appeal forms must be received by the Academy by the closing date 16th April 2022 at 5.00pm. The appeals will be heard, in private, by an Independent appeal Panel.

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.
