How to Apply
Parents or guardians who would like to apply for a place at Phoenix Academy at any time other than Year 7, will need to apply using the Hammersmith and Fulham Council’s in-year online application form. You can find the In-Year Application Form, by selecting the link below:
Parents can make an online in-year application via Hammersmith and Fulham Council’s website or can download a paper application form from the same website. Parents should return the application form directly to Hammersmith and Fulham Council.
Once an application has been received by the Hammersmith and Fulham Council’s Admissions Team, the council will make a decision as to whether a place can be offered. If a school has more vacancies than applications, your child will be offered a place. If the school has more applications than places available, admission rules are used to decide the order that applicants are offered places. If we are unable to offer a place, the child’s name will be placed on a waiting list in accordance with the published admissions criteria.
If it has not been possible to offer your child a place at Phoenix Academy, you have the right, by law, to appeal to an independent appeal panel. Although the law allows you to have the opportunity to appeal against admission decisions, it does not give your child the automatic right to a place at a particular school. There is no guarantee that your appeal will be successful, and each case will be decided on its own merits by the independently appointed panel.
Appeals are processed by Phoenix Academy. If you wish to appeal for a place in Year 7/ Year 12/ in-year, please complete the Appeal Form below and return it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
