Admissions Policy number

The Academy has an admission number of 180 for entry in year 7. The School will accordingly admit this number of students if there are sufficient applications. Where fewer applicants than the published admission number for the relevant year group are received, the Academy Trust will offer places at the Academy to all those who have applied.

Oversubscription Criteria

Where applications for admission to Year 7 exceed the 180 places available, after the admission of students with an Education, Health and Care plan naming the Academy, the following criteria applies in the order set out, to determine which students to admit to Eden Park High School.

The criteria are:

1) Looked After Children and previously Looked After Children (Children in Public Care).

2) Sibling (a sibling on roll at the proposed time of entry)

3) Students entitled to Pupil Premium Grant (up to 20% of the 180 places on offer).

4) Proximity: distance will be measured in a straight line from the student’s front door of their main home address (see below) to the main entrance of the School’s permanent site on Balmoral Avenue, Beckenham. This distance will be determined using the Local Authority’s computerised measuring system, with those students living closest receiving higher priority.
