Academy Admissions

Lead Admissions Officer: Sarah Warshow
Administration of Admissions: Clare Clark

We have 60 places available in Reception each year.  The dates for our open days are publicised on this website.  Please do take the time to come and meet us.

When considering applications, children with a statement of Special Education Needs that names the Academy or those with Educational Healthcare (EHC) Plans will be admitted first and under different regulations.

If there are more than 60 application, Looked After and Former Looked After Children will be admitted first, followed by children who the Harris Federation accepts have an exceptional medical or social need for a place at the school. Supporting evidence in the form of a written statement from a doctor, social worker or other relevant independent professionals will need to be provided.

Children with siblings at the Academy will be prioritised next.  All remaining places will be distributed on the basis of proximity between home and school, with children who live closest to Kingswood Road being prioritised.

You can read our full admissions policy below.

For Parents/Carers who Wish to Appeal

Parent(s) may wish to appeal against the Academy’s decision on admissions based on the published admissions criteria.

If you wish to appeal, you must complete the appeals form available from the office. You can attach to your appeals form any relevant documents and or a letter with information and evidence that you feel supports your case.

Completed forms should be sent to the Clerk to the Appeal Panel at Harris Primary Academy Shortlands, Kingswood Road, Shortlands, Bromley, Kent BR2 0HG

Forms must be received by the Academy by the 15 May 2019.

The appeals will be heard, in private, by an Independent appeal Panel. The Clerk to the Appeal Panel will make an appointment within a reasonable time and appeals may be made in English or the Parents’/Carers’ first language.

• Only one appeal per application is allowed.

• Appeals are conducted in person, and you may bring a friend.

The Appeal Hearing

The Academy will arrange for an Independent Appeals Panel to consider the Academy's reasons for refusal and your reasons for wanting to attend the Academy. 

The Panel will consist of 3 people (2 will have education experience and one will be an independent person with no education experience).

The Panel will consider the case put forward by you and the Academy. They must consider the admission arrangements for the Academy and the reasons why you want to attend that particular school.  The Panel must exercise its discretion by balancing the weight of your argument (for wanting to attend) against the Academy’s reasons for refusal i.e. the prejudice that one more student would cause to the education of the students already offered and the Health and Safety of all the students already attending the Academy, also taking into account the Academy's published admission arrangements. 

The decision of the Independent Appeals Panel is binding on the admissions authority and the Parents.

In-year admissions

Please contact the school office to see if we have any places available in our current Reception and Key Stage 1 and 2 cohorts. You will need to apply through the London Borough of Bromley’s Admissions team but can specify our Academy if there are spaces available. Click here to find out more.
