How to apply for September 2021

We have space for 200 children in our Year 7 for September 2021.

If you are applying for a place in Year 7 starting in September 2021 before the application closing date of 31 October 2020 please apply via the Local Authority for the area in which you live.  If this is Walsall Council, the information can be found here.

If you miss the deadline, you can still apply through your Local Authority; however your application will be treated as a ‘late application’.  These will be considered after applications received by the deadline.

Transferring to our academy

For all other applications, please complete the Academy Transformation Trust in-year admissions form which can be found by clicking here.  This should be returned to Pool Hayes Academy, Castle Drive, Willenhall, WV12 4QZ.

If you have any questions, please contact the school on 01902 368147.

If our academy is oversubscribed

We give priority to children living within the local community of the academy.  However, if there are more applications than there are places at our academy, we will give preference to children according to the following rule:

  1. Looked after Children (current and previously)
  2. Children living permanently at the same address as a child attending the academy at the time of their admission
  3. Children living closest to the academy based on straight line distance (this link will give you an estimate of the straight line distance between your house and the academy)

All children with statements of special educational needs or an education health and care plan (where the academy is named on the statement) will be admitted before we apply these three rules.

We keep a waiting list for each year group which is used to fill any vacancies.  This is ordered based on the above criteria and not on the date your child is added to it.

The waiting list is cleared at the end of June each year (and 1 January for Year 7).  If you would like your child to remain on the list after these dates please contact us on 01902 368147.
