Applying to the secondary academy
The deadline for applications to year 7 for the academic year commencing September 2022 has passed. Please refer to the local authority if you wish to submit a late application or if you have a query about admissions.
Parents will have received confirmation of places from the local authority on 1st March 2022.
If you have received notification that you have a place at Harris Academy Riverside, we will contact you with various information and to arrange to meet you. If you have been unsuccessful please be aware that we do not decide who comes to the academy - this is done by the local authority and queries should be raised with them. However, you can appeal to the academy as below if unhappy with the local authority decision.
Information about the admissions process - including for September 2023 - can be found on the local authority website by clicking here.
Please note that the academy does not have any authority or influence over the offer of places which are determined in accordance with our oversubscriptions criteria which can be found in our admissions policy. The offer of places is administered by the local authority.
A parent or carer who wishes to appeal against the decisions of the local authority in offering places should give notice that they intend to appeal by e mailing the academy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parents or carers appealing will then be asked to complete an appeals form and submit it to the academy with any supporting evidence or documents. The appeals form can be downloaded from this page (below) or the academy can provide one.
The deadline for appeals for the academic year commencing September 2022 is 4pm on 30th April 2022.
Appeals will be heard during June 2022.
Appeals are heard by an independent panel. The appeals panel should take into account your arguments, any arguments put forward by the academy and the academy's admissions policy and oversubscription criteria.
Decisions of the appeal panel are binding on all parties. Only one appeal is allowed per applicant.

In year applications are covered by our admissions policy which can be read and downloaded below. Parents or carers who wish to apply for an 'in year' place will need to complete two forms which can be downloaded below;
