Admissions

Entry for Year 7 in September 2022

Hoe Valley will be admitting students into Year 7 in September 2022 as part of Surrey County Council’s coordinated arrangements. Therefore you will apply for a place through Surrey County Council using their online Common Application Form (CAF). Offers a made for on-time applications, by Surrey County Council on National Offers Day March 1st 2022. On National Offers Day parents/carers will be sent an email, or notification via the app ‘ParentComms’, with the outcome directly from Surrey County Council, usually from 5.00pm onwards. Applicants who applied on paper will be sent a letter via 1st class post. You must accept or decline your place with Surrey County Council by 15th March 2022. You are strongly recommended to accept the place you are offered, even if this is not for the school you wanted, as it will ensure your child has a school place in September. Accepting the offered place will not negatively affect your child’s position on any waiting lists for other schools, nor the outcome of any appeal. Declining the offer will not increase the chances of your child being offered a place at your preferred school. If you decline the offer and you have no alternative place you will be responsible for finding your child another school. The place you decline may be offered to another child so may not be available later if you change your mind. You are encouraged to provide a prompt response even if you wish to decline the offer. This will ensure that the place can be offered promptly to the next child on the waiting list and will prevent schools from having a vacancy for any longer than is necessary. If you do not respond to an offer, it will be withdrawn by Surrey County Council.

Full details of this process can be found on the SCC Website here https://www.surreycc.gov.uk/schools-and-learning/schools/admissions/secondary
Information on Secondary Schools in Surrey is also available through Surrey County Council here

Waiting Lists for Year 7 for September 2022

If you listed Hoe Valley School as one of your preferences, but were not offered a place and were offered a lower preference school, your child will have been added to our waiting list automatically. If you were offered a higher preference school and have now decided that you would like your child added to our waiting list, please contact Surrey County Council and request that they add us as a preference to your child’s application – we are unable to do this for you unfortunately.

We are not able to view waiting list rankings until this is released to us by Surrey County Council – we have been advised that ranked waiting lists will be available from 24th March. To help us best manage the high levels of parent enquiries, you are requested to email us with any questions to admissions@hoevalleyschool.org where emails will be responded to in the order in which they have been received. Please note that due to the very high level of enquiries, we cannot accept personal visitors to the school and respectfully request that you do not visit the school without an appointment.
