Admission to YEAR 7

Uxbridge High School has one main year for admissions.  Children are admitted into the National Curriculum Year 7 at the age of 11. 

The governors have agreed to process applications for admission to Uxbridge High School in Year 7 according to the co-ordinated admissions scheme managed by the London Borough of Hillingdon Education Authority.

IN YEAR admissions FOR YEARS 7 to 11

Uxbridge High School is a successful, over-subscribed school.  All year groups are full and we hold a waiting list. Some places may become available during the year and parents can apply for an in-year admission by completing the In-Year Admission Form  and attach the information requested (proof of date of birth / recent school report). A distance measurement will be sought from Hillingdon Local Authority, which takes approximately 8 working days, and the application will then be added to the waiting list for the relevant year group.  Places will be offered and filled from our waiting list in line with our admissions criteria.  Once your child's application has been added to the waiting list (after approximately 8 working days), you may contact the school to ask where they are on the waiting list.  We suggest that you only contact the school via email to office@uhs.org.uk once per month to see if this has changed.  The school will only accept applications via the online form above or via the local authority and cannot take applications in person.  Please be aware that your child's application may move up and down on the waiting list, as further applications are received and our admissions criteria applied to them.

ADMISSIONS CRITERIA

Please see our up-to-date admissions policies under policies in the 'our school' tab.

Admissions Procedure

Appeals

If it has not been possible to offer your child a place at Uxbridge High School, you have the right, by law, to appeal to an independent appeal panel.

When considering whether to appeal, it is important that you are aware that although the law allows you to have the opportunity to appeal against admission decisions, it does not give your child the right to a place at a particular school. There is no guarantee that your appeal will be successful. If you are appealing for a place at Uxbridge High School, you should make arrangements for a place at an alternative school in case your appeal is unsuccessful. Accepting a place at another school does not affect your right to appeal for a place at Uxbridge High School.

School admissions page of www.gov.uk will explain your rights regarding admission to schools.

An Appeal Pack should be requested from Uxbridge High School by 31st March for the September transition. Appeals will be accepted after this deadline, but they may be heard at a later date. 

Appellants will receive at least 10 school days' notice of their appeal hearing.

If you would like to submit additional evidence, we would ask that you do so no later than 5 school days' before the hearing. This is so that evidence can be sent to all parties in a reasonable time before the hearing.

Decision letters will be sent within 5 school days of the hearing wherever possible.
