Admission Arrangements For UKAT Sixth Form Students

Proposed Procedure for Admissions into Year 12 in 2018/2019

 

The recommended pupil admission for the UKAT Sixth Form is a total of two hundred students.  Two hundred places overall will be available in Year 12 - this  will be the capacity for Year 12.  If admissions for Year 12 exceed the maximum of four hundred places the Academy will allow a further five external applicants to apply for a place in Year 12.  If fewer than one hundred and fifty of the two Academies own Year 11 students transfer into Year 12, additional external students will be considered for a place at the UKAT Sixth Form until Year 12 meets its capacity of four hundred students.

 

Entry Requirements

 

Academic entry criteria will be applied for all courses offered in the UKAT Sixth Form. Course entry requirements for specific courses will be displayed annually in the UKAT Options booklet by subject. However individual student cases may be considered on merit. Offers of places will remain conditional until actual results are verified.  

 

Over-subscription Criteria

 

If Year 12 is over-subscribed then after the automatic admission of Looked After Children and children who were looked after, but ceased to be so because they were adopted (or because they were subject to a residence order or special guardianship order), and after the automatic admission of students with an EHCP where Brompton Academy/Chatham Grammar School for Girls is named on the EHCP (after the UKAT Sixth Form has been consulted and it has been agreed), the criteria shall be applied b to c below in the order in which they are set out below.

 

a. Children in public care or previously looked after, but ceased to be so because they were adopted (or became    subject to a residence order or special guardianship order).

            

            b. Current family association (as defined in the Admissions Policy under the Admissions section on the website).

            c. Students attending Year 11 or who are post 16+ and attending one of the other schools/academies in Medway or                         the neighbouring borders.

Admissions are subject to a vacancy existing on the course for which the student is applying and students meeting the entry criteria for the courses they are applying to. The Governors may, in exceptional circumstances, refuse admission to any individual student if, in their view, to admit that student would prejudice the fulfilment of the Academy’s aims or seriously disrupt the provision of effective education of other students.

Waiting Lists

 

Where in any year UKAT Sixth Form receives more applications for places than there are places available, a waiting list will operate.  This will be maintained by the University of Kent Academies Trust and it will be open to any parent/carer to ask for his or her child’s name to be placed on the waiting list, following an unsuccessful application.  

Children’s position on the waiting list will be determined solely in accordance with the oversubscription criteria set out above  where places become vacant they will be allocated to young people on the waiting list in accordance with the oversubscription criteria.
