All applicants are required to submit a completed application form directly to the school by 15th September 2017.  You can apply online or submit an application form which can be obtained from the school on request or from the Local Authority, Admissions and Appeals, Tel. 0121 303 1888.

 

All applicants must also complete the Local Authority application form to be considered for a place at Ninestiles.  The Local Authority application form can be obtained from your child’s Primary School or from the Local Authority, Admissions and Appeals.  Tel. 0121 303 1888

 

Late applicants will be positioned on the distance waiting list after the initial offers are made to children who have completed our admissions process.  Late entries from siblings are placed at the top of the distance waiting list and take priority.

Proof of address may be asked for either at the time of making the application or when attending for the assessment tests.

If you need to discuss any application enquiry please call: 0121 628 1311 and ask for Mrs Geraghty.

Admission Allocation

Every year 300 places are offered to children aged 11 by 1st September in the year of entry, of which 9 places are allocated to the Resource Base by the Local Authority. All other applicants will be required to complete an assessment. These assessments will test aptitude in non-verbal reasoning in line with the proposal in the Government White paper “Excellence in Schools”, which encourages specialist schools to give priority to children who demonstrate the relevant aptitude. 30 places (10% of 300) will be allocated to those students achieving the highest marks in the assessment tests.

Up to 261 places allocated on criteria of:

  • Children in the care of the local authority or who previously were.
  • Children with a brother or sister already at the academy who will still be in attendance in September 2018.
  • Children attending a Ninestiles Trust academy primary school.
  • Children who live nearest the academy.

Within each of these categories, priority is given to those who live nearest the academy, calculated on the basis of a straight-line measurement between home and academy. Distances are calculated on the basis of a straight line measurement between the applicant’s home address and the middle front gate of the academy. The Local Authority’s Distance Definition, Shared Responsibility, Separating /No tie Breaker definitions have been adopted by Ninestiles.
