Admissions and Appeals
Applications for entry into Year 7 September 2019
More details about RBG's coordinated admissions round for entry to Year 7 in September 2019, including instructions on how to apply, are available here.
Applications to the Greenwich Free School for students progressing from Year 6 to 7 are made through the Local Authority Common Application process. This simply means that you should list the Greenwich Free School as one of your preferences on your local authority form. If you are a resident of another borough, the same applies: just list the Greenwich Free School on your local authority form.
There is no supplementary form to fill out for the Greenwich Free School, and pupils do not need to sit any entrance exams or tests.
Once confirmed, dates for our Open Events for those pupils seeking to join us in September 2020 will be published on the RBG website and on our homepage.
For full details on the Admission arrangments to AGFS please see our Admissions Policy above.
Ark Network Appeals Timetable
Appeals for children refused a place at a preferred school for admission to Year 7 in September 2020 will be heard in line with the School Admissions Appeals Code (2012).
Due to the COVID-19 situation it will clearly not be possible to hold panel hearings in the usual way this year. The Department for Education has now issued revised guidelines for Admissions Authorities on how appeals should be dealt with, it being preferable that appeals are heard before the beginning of the Autumn term. All appellants will therefore be contacted with information about the exact process, which will be the same for all Ark schools. The aim is to complete hearings and for parents to be notified of the outcome of their appeal by 30th June 2020.
If you wish to appeal for a place in Year 7/Year 12, please click here for the secondary appeal form.
Please contact the academy if you need a paper form.
