Student Admission Policy
Amery Hill School is popular and we work to accommodate any child and parent who are keen to join our school. We work alongside the Hampshire Admissions Team to provide a fair system for admitting students to our successful school.
Amery Hill School 's Catchment Area
If you live within the western half of Alton, Beech, Bentworth, Chawton, Farringdon, Herriard and Medstead you are in the school's catchment area. You can still apply to attend Amery Hill School if you are outside the catchment area.
Application procedure for students to join in year 7
To apply to send your child to Amery Hill School you will need to complete the application form on Hampshire County Council's website (guidance is provided). Paper application forms can be obtained from any HCC school office or by calling 0845 603 5623 for a form to be sent.
Please give a full and clear reason for your choice of school as your reason may play a part in the final allocation of places.
If your child does not attend one of our feeder schools please telephone Hampshire County Council's Admissions Team on 0300 555 1377.
Application procedure for students already at a secondary school
If your child is already at a secondary school, regardless of whether they are within or outside of the catchment area, then please telephone Hampshire County Council's Admissions Team on 0300 555 1377 for details of how to apply.
Application procedure for home to school transport
Please visit Hampshire County Council's Transport Portal for information on eligibility and how to apply for school transport.
When your child joins the school you will be asked to complete an admission form. This will give us the information we need to be able to cater for your child's needs. Please complete the form accurately and inform us of any changes as soon as possible.
If your child joins Amery Hill School from one of the feeder schools their primary school's records will also be automatically transferred to us. Additional information about students will be kept for example school reports or medical records. All records are kept strictly confidential. If you wish to inspect your child's school records please make the request in writing to Mr S. Mann, Headteacher:
Amery Hill's proposed admission policy for 2020/21 is being aligned with Hampshire County Council's admission policy. The main changes will be moving the Children of Staff criterion from number 7 to number 3, and including a reference to Pupils with an Education, Health and Care Plan (p1). In line with the Schools Admission Code 2014, it is now available for statutory consultation which will end on 31st January 2019. If you would like to comment on this proposed policy, please contact the Headteacher, Mr S Mann, by email (email@example.com) or telephone (01420 84545) before 31st January 2019.
