In-Year Admissions

An in-year admission is when a student is admitted to the school, outside of the normal secondary transfer period (when a student enters the school from Year 6 into Year 7).  

Procedures for making a secondary transfer have recently changed and all parents of students wishing to apply for a place at Haberdashers’ Crayford Academy, whether they live in Bexley or in a neighbouring local authority (Kent or Greenwich etc), must complete a ‘Bexley In Year Application Form’ which is available on Bexley Council's website or using the link below:   

Bexley Website

Find out more by calling the Bexley Admissions Team on 020 8303 7777. 

If more applications are received than there are places available, the oversubscription criteria for secondary school shall apply. The waiting list will operate until the end of the academic year. If, at the end of the academic year parents wish their children to be considered for entry to the subsequent year group, they will be required to apply afresh.

We will only contact you if a place becomes available.  We will contact the person at the top of the list to offer them a place at the school, if they reject the place, we move onto the next in line and continue until we have an acceptance.

The Academy participates in Bexley LA’s In Year Fair Access Protocol (FAP) and children may be prioritised over those children on the waiting list for admission under this protocol.

Bexley will inform the Academy of the application. If a place cannot be offered at the time of applying, the child's name will be added to the waiting list for the academic year.
