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 2022, 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.
For entry in Year 7 in September 2022, the determined admissions arrangements (entrance criteria) can be found below.
All applicants will be admitted if 150 or fewer apply. Oversubscription criteria will be applied if more than 150 apply.
The admissions arrangements for entry into Year 7 in September 2022 includes 15 Specialist Music Places. The Year 7 specialist music place information can be found below.
Applications for these Specialist Music Scholarship Places is now closed for September 2022 admission (deadline for submission was 12 noon on Friday 8th October 2021). Parent(s) who have applied for a Music Place must also fill in their home local authority's Common Application Form.
There was a single Specialist Music Assessment Day for Specialist Music Scholarship Places at Ealing Fields High School and Twyford Church of England High School. This was the ONLY assessment session and late applications will NOT be accepted.
Arrangements for applications for the remaining places will be made solely in accordance with the Local Authority’s co-ordinated admission arrangements and should be made on the Home Local Authority Common Application Form.
The Academy Trust will use Ealing Council’s timetable for applications each year, which fits in with the timetable for the co-ordination of admission arrangements within London. The application deadline is 31st October 2021. Further information on applying for a High School place can be found on Ealing Council's website here.
Unsuccessful applicants have a statutory right to appeal for a place at the Academy. See details in Appeals section below. Appeals will be heard by a panel which is independent of the Academy and the Governors.
