For all in-year admissions, between 1st September 2023 and 31st August 2024 please contact the school office at Whitehill Community Academy directly or fill out the In Year admissions form provided below. An in-year admission application is one that is made outside of the normal time of transfer between schools, for example when a family moves to a new house part way through a school year. Parents will be notified of an outcome within 5 days of receipt of the form, in most cases this will be much sooner.
