Ealing Fields is a state funded, co-educational secondary free school within the Twyford CofE Academies Trust.
After receiving feedback from a range of people with an interest in the new school, Trust Directors decided that the school should have an 'open' admissions policy (oversubscription criteria) as opposed to one based on faith criteria.
Ealing Fields is committed to straightforward, open, fair and transparent admissions arrangements. The school will act fully in accordance with the School Admissions Code (as revised December 2014), the School Admissions Appeals Code and admissions law as they apply to academies.
For entry into Year 7 in September 2024, Ealing Fields High School has an agreed admission number of 150 students.
These arrangements and the admissions criteria are reviewed annually by the governing body, and should not be regarded as binding for future years.
2023/24 Academic Year
In-Year Admissions are for those wishing to apply for a place at the school during the academic year.
Applicant families are able to apply from the beginning of the Autumn term and onward throughout each academic year. Parents and carers who submit application forms at the beginning of September will be notified at the end of the second week of the Autumn term. Should any places be available, offers will be made before the October half-term. Parents and carers who submit applications will receive the outcome of their application within 20 school days to allow for proof of address and measured distances to be verified.
In the case of there being more applicants than places available, the same over-subscription criteria as published for admission to Year 7 will be applied to in-year applications.
In Year Admissions for 2023/24 Academic Year are subject to the Admissions Policy for September 2023 entry which can be found below. Please read this criteria before completing the relevant form.
