IN-YEAR VACANCIES

In Year Admissions

Parents wishing their child to be considered for a vacancy in Year 7 should write directly to the school. For those applicants who took the entrance tests in year 6, the ranking list is maintained until the end of the first half term. Therefore, if a vacancy arises between the start of the academic year in September and the October half term, the next applicant on our initial waiting list of 40 will be offered the place. If further vacancies arise after this, the remaining applicants on our initial waiting list will be tested in June or July, along with all new applicants on the list. The Governors will base their decisions on the results of tests in English, Maths, French or German. Any successful applicant will begin at Latymer in September.

For vacancies in Years 8 or 9 parents should again write directly to the school. If a vacancy arises, tests will be held once during the academic year in June or July. The Governors base their decisions on the results of tests in English, Mathematics, French or German (or Russian or Latin for year 9). All lists will close on the 1 June and any successful applicant will begin at Latymer in September.

The governors will admit applicants up to the number of vacancies, but will only admit applicants who demonstrate through the tests that s/he is capable of following the Latymer education. If there are more qualified candidates than vacancies, the governors will apply the order of priority listed in over subscription criteria above.

For Year 10 we would only seek to fill a vacancy if we were able to offer subject compatibility. We would then follow the same procedures as for other in year vacancies, with additional testing in the Sciences. Parents interested in Year 11 vacancies should call the school for further information. External Year 11 students are welcome to apply for Year 12.
