Admissions Criteria 2017/18
Waiting List and Appeals Process
If you are unsuccessful in being allocated a place at The Hyndburn Academy, you will be placed on our waiting list. This list is ranked according to the same criteria as those used for admissions. You will be asked to notify us that you wish to be held on this list and will be contacted directly once a place is available. You may appeal against our decision not to offer you a place and must do so in writing to the admissions officer within 14 days of being notified that you have not been offered a place. An independent appeal panel will hear your appeal.
What to do next:
Contact Pupil Access Team East and request an appeals and reserve list form from:
44 Union Rd
Tel: 01254 220711
Parents/Carers can download appeals and reserve list forms from LCC Website.
Once you have completed an appeal form you should return it to us here at the Academy.
In Year Admissions
If you wish to apply for a place at The Hyndburn Academy for Year 7 after December 31st 2017 or in any other year group, please contact the Academy to enquire if there are any places available. If the year group is full, then you will be added to the waiting list for the relevant year group. The waiting list is compiled in accordance with the Academy Admissions Policy.
The Academy Admissions Policy places great emphasis upon family values and equity. The admissions applications will be considered against the admissions criteria for the current year in which you are applying to join the school.
The Academy’s in year appeals process is managed by Lancashire County Council and is completely independent of the Academy. If you wish to appeal for a place in a year group that is full then please contact the local area access team at the following address:
