In-year applications

Further details on the In Year protocols, including the Published Admission Number for each year group is available within the admissions policy below.  

Since September 2013, the law allows you to apply directly to Harris Academy Tottenham.  Please contact Admissions at the Academy, (contact details above) to request an in-year admission form, or download from (see below). Please note that there is no guarantee that a place will be available, but you have the right of appeal if you are refused a place.


Appeals process

Parent(s) wishing to appeal against the Academy’s decision on admissions, for any year group, should complete an Appeal Form (see below) stating the reason for the appeal, based on the published Admissions Criteria.

If you wish to appeal, you must contact Admissions at the Academy who will send you an appeals form to complete.

Completed forms should be sent to the Clerk to the Appeal Panel at Harris Academy Tottenham, Ashley Road, London, N17 9LN

The appeals will be heard, in private, by an Independent Appeal Panel. The Clerk to the Appeal Panel will make an appointment within a reasonable time; appeals may be made in English or the Parents /Carers’ first language.

  • Only one appeal per application is allowed.
  • Appeals are conducted in person, and you may bring a friend.

The appeal hearing

The Academy will arrange for an Independent Appeals Panel to consider the Academy's reasons for refusal and your reasons for wanting to attend the Academy. 

The Panel will consist of three people (two will have education experience and one will be an independent person with no education experience).

The Panel will consider the case put forward by you and the Academy. They must consider the admission arrangements for the Academy and the reasons why you want to attend that particular school.  The Panel must exercise its discretion by balancing the weight of your argument (for wanting to attend) against the Academy’s reasons for refusal i.e. the prejudice that one more student would cause to the education of the students already offered and the Health and Safety of all the students already attending the Academy, also taking into account the Academy's published admission arrangements. 

The decision of the Independent Appeals Panel is binding on the admissions authority and the Parents.

Please Note: The Academy does not provide help with appeals.
