Lambeth Academy is an inclusive school and welcomes children from the local community. The Governors are also committed to ensuring that the admissions to the academy reflect the full range of ability.
Lambeth Academy admits up to 180 students to Year 7 each September. The admission arrangements described in this document below will apply to admissions in September 2021.
In order to ensure that the intake to the academy represents the full range of ability, we will use student banding as part of our admissions arrangements. All applicants will be asked to take a cognitive ability test and, based on their test score, will be placed in one of five equal ability bands, with the same number of applicants in each band. Other than to determine the ability band into which a student will be placed, the assessment of a student’s ability plays no other part in the admission arrangements for Lambeth Academy.
Admissions to Lambeth Academy will be coordinated through the Pan London Coordinated Admissions Scheme and its timetable. Applications should be submitted on the Common Application Form to the local authority responsible for the parental address. Families should also complete a Supplementary Information Form to be returned directly to the academy.
The admission of students with an Educational Health Care Plan is conducted through a separate process. Parents of these students should contact their home Local Authority’s SEND department.
We believe that strong parental or guardian involvement is essential for the success of every student and all parents, guardians and students will be invited to meet with staff at the school soon after a place is offered.
There are no faith criteria as part of the admissions policy. Children from families of all faiths, or none, are very welcome.
Please note that the Admissions Test for September 2021 will be held on Saturday 14th November 2020.
