Admission Arrangements for Year 7 Entry

Following direction from the Department of Education and the Diocese of Rochester, Aquinas Church of England Education Trust, the admission authority for Bishop Justus CE Secondary School, is seeking to amend the already determined admission arrangements for 2021/22 for the academy.  The amendment relates to how the admission criteria based on church attendance will be determined during the period when places of worship were closed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  The changes are detailed in the documents found here.

Should your church be without an incumbent (Vicar, Priest, Pastor) please ask the church warden, who needs to have known your child for 2 years or more, to complete our application forms. Both church administrators and Area Deans are also able to do this, again, having known your child for 2 years or more.

Admissions Arrangements 2021/22

As admission authority, the Aquinas Trust Board has considered the objections/questions raised during the consultation period, together with the academies’ responses and the views of the RDBE prior to making its final determination on the admission arrangements for 2021/22 for Bishop Justus CE School, St John’s CE Primary School, St Mark’s CE Primary School, St Nicholas CE Primary School and Trinity CE Primary School.

Having discussed these concerns fully, the Trust Board has approved all the proposed amendments to the admission arrangements for 2021/22 as it felt the changes proposed would not affect the strong Christian ethos, vision and values already embedded at each academy.

In-Year Admissions

Applications for In-Year admissions are made directly to the London Borough of Bromley (https://www.bromley.gov.uk/info/14/secondary_school_admissions/71/secondary_school_places/2)

In the normal admissions round or at any point in the normal year of entry, if a place is available and there is no waiting list, the child will be admitted [except where the “twice excluded” rule applies]. 

For in-year applications received for all other year groups, if a place is available and there is no waiting list, the child will be admitted subject to the admission authority being able to refuse admission if it has good reason to believe that the child may display challenging behaviour and thus refer the child to the Fair Access Protocol.

If more applications are received than there are places available, then applications will be ranked in accordance with the oversubscription criteria above. In addition, the academy’s supplementary Information Form should be completed and returned to the academy in order for the academy’s full admissions criteria to be implemented.  If a place cannot be offered at this time you have a right of appeal. You will be offered the opportunity of being placed on a waiting list.
