The Admissions Criteria
The Academy is part of the pan-London admissions scheme which requires all parents to complete a preference form. In doing so, Hammersmith Academy must be listed as one of your preferences on the Local Authority form.
The Academy will admit 130 pupils into Year 7 every September (in accordance with the Academy’s published admission number). The APA boundaries are listed in the Admissions Policy which can be downloaded below for entry in September 2019, or the extended APA boundaries which are applicable for entry from September 2018 onwards, can be downloaded here:
If you are unclear whether you live within the Priority Area, please do contact the Academy office for clarification.
All looked after children will be admitted, but will still be required to take the fair banding test.
Those who are offered a place at Hammersmith Academy will be informed in March through the Local Authority.
Every applicant to the Academy will be required to take a fairbanding test.
Every applicant will be placed in one of five bands based on their performance in the test. This does not effect their eligibility for selection. An equal number of students are admitted from each band. Places will be allocated by applying the oversubscription criteria.

Hammersmith Academy does not prioritise students from select schools.
Parents/carers who are not offered a place for their child may appeal to an independent committee under the provisions of the Schools Standards & Framework Act, 1998.
