How to apply for a place

E-ACT has responsibility for admissions to the academy and has a planned admission number (PAN) at age 11 of 180.

The academy will grow year on year with a new intake of Year 7 students joining us each September.

Applying for a Yr 7 place for September 2019

To apply for a place at City Heights Academy you need to complete a Secondary Transfer Common Application form. This is provided by your home borough. You should return the form as instructed.

If you are a Lambeth resident, please click here  for Lambeth’s online Secondary Transfer Common Application process.

The formal offer of a place will come from the Local Authority who will write to parents/carers on National Offer Day in March 2019 allocating a single secondary school to their child.

City Heights Academy uses the over subscription criteria in the admissions policy to rank unsuccessful applicants in a waiting list so that further places may be offered by the Local Authority if they become available. The waiting list will close on the final day of the academic year.

Unsuccessful applicants will also be advised in March 2019.
