Academy Status

On 1st August 2017 we became an academy. However our admission criteria remain the same as Wandsworth Council’s publication.

Last year's admissions

Whilst there is a degree of variation year on year, the 2018 information may help to give some indication of the proximity factor in determining offers. 74 places were available (60 English, 14 Bilingual). Places were allocated by the following priorities:

  1. Priority 1 - Looked after children
  2. Priority 2 - Exceptional medical or social need
  3. Priority 3 – Siblings (children with a sibling on roll at Belleville Wix at the date of their entry).
  4. Priority 4 – Distance from school

Places continue to be offered as and when they become available. 

Nursery: There were part-time and full time places offered this year.

If you require a full time nursery place, please check here to see if you are eligible, before applying.

ADMISSIONS CONSULTATION for September 2020 entry

We are consulting on a proposed change to our admissions policy, to enable children of staff members to join Belleville Wix Academy from September 2020. We hope this will help us to continue to improve staff recruitment and retention.

There are many schools which already include children of staff in their prioritisation criteria, and Wandsworth  Council is currently consulting on making the same change for all of its community schools.

If this change is implemented, children of school staff will be prioritised after siblings of children currently on roll. All other aspects of current arrangements would remain the same (including the process for allocating places to the bilingual classes). Details can be found in the consultation summary document.

Our consultation is open from 4th December 2018 until 28th January 2019

If you have any comments on these proposals, please write during the consultation period to:

Charlotte Meade (Director of Operations, Quality First Education Trust) care of the school office, or by email to charlotte.meade@q1e.org.uk
