Entry for Year 7 in September 2021
If your child has not been offered a place at Hoe Valley School, but you listed us as one of your 6 preference schools in your application, you will have been automatically added to our waiting list. If you have not listed Hoe Valley School as one of your preference schools but would now like to do so, you must contact Surrey County Council Admissions Team and request that they add us to your preferences.
Information about waiting list positions are not available to us until week commencing 22nd March 2021.
The quickest way to get a response from us regarding Admissions during this exceptionally busy time is to email Mrs Rebecca Knight, our Admissions Officer on firstname.lastname@example.org and she will be pleased to help you. Please note that the main school office do not hold admissions data so will not be able to assist you with your enquiry. We respectfully request that you do not attempt to visit the school site in person.
Hoe Valley will be admitting students into Year 7 in September 2021 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 2021. 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 2021. 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.
