How to Apply
Parents or guardians who would like to apply for a place at Future Academies Watford at any time other than Year 7, will need to apply using the in-year application form below.
Once an application has been received by Future Academies Watford, the Academy will make a decision as to whether a place can be offered. If the Academy has more vacancies than applications, your child will be offered a place. If the Academy has more applications than places available, admission rules are used to decide the order in which applicants are offered places. If we are unable to offer a place, the child’s name will be placed on a waiting list in accordance with the published admissions criteria. You will be notified within 7 working days of the outcome of your application.
If it has not been possible to offer your child a place at Future Academies Watford, you have the right, by law, to appeal to an independent appeal panel. Although the law allows you to have the opportunity to appeal against admission decisions, it does not give your child the automatic right to a place at a particular school. There is no guarantee that your appeal will be successful, and each case will be decided on its own merits by the independently appointed panel.
Appeals for Future Academies Watford are processed by Hertfordshire County Council, and further information about the process can be found on the Hertfordshire County Council’s website. If you are appealing for Year 6/7 Secondary Transfer, your application outcome letter will include information on the timescale for submitting an appeal.
