Admissions

Crompton House School recognises that choosing which secondary school your child attends is one of the most important decisions any parent will make. Secondary education provides the foundation for their life as adults. Your child will acquire the skills, knowledge and qualifications they will need to progress onto further education and fulfilling, rewarding careers.

We are a Church of England mixed comprehensive school for pupils of all abilities aged 11 to 19 years .  All pupils are taught within a caring, supportive environment underpinned by the school’s Christian ethos.

We hope our website will give you a flavour of our school and what it can offer to you and your child. Open Evenings for Year 6 pupils are held in the Autumn term each year for parents and pupils to come along to meet our governors, staff and current pupils, ask questions and see our facilities.

Crompton House Supplementary Form
How to Apply Year 7 - 11

Applications for places at Crompton House School are made to the Local Authority (this is the Authority in which you
live and pay council tax to) using their online application process.  The Local Authority will provide details of how to make your application whilst your child is in Year 6 and can also be found on their website.

Applicants MUST ALSO submit a separate Supplementary Form directly to the school.  The Supplementary Form is used to score your application against our admissions criteria.  The form must be completed by your place of worship and submitted to Crompton House School directly by the closing date. Please note that the date for submission of the Supplementary Form is often earlier than the online Local Authority application and can vary depending on which authority you are applying to.

The deadline for applications will be advised by the Local Authority and are detailed on the Supplementary Form.

Information from the Supplementary Form is provided to the Local Authority by the School to be used in the event of over-subscription for school places.  All applications are processed and places offered by the Local Authority according to our Admissions Policy.

How to get a Supplementary Form

Supplementary Application Forms are available at our Open Evenings or can be collected in person from our reception from the first day of the Autumn Term until closing date of applications each year.

Please note applications can only be accepted on original numbered forms provided by the school.

How you will find out if you have a place

Applications are processed and places offered by the Local Authority in line with our Admissions Policy. The Local Authority will advise you of the result of your application on ‘Offer Day’ which is usually the Monday on or after the 1st of March each year.

Crompton House School is unable to provide any information about places offered until two weeks after Offer Day.

'In Year' Admissions Applications

Crompton House School is regularly over-subscribed in each academic year, therefore it is unusual for places to become available for ‘In Year’ transfer applications. However, in the unlikely event a place becomes available ‘In Year’ places are allocated according to the admissions criteria for the relevant academic year.

Parents wishing to make an application for ‘In Year’ admission should make an online application to the Local Authority using their online application process.  Details of this process can be found on the Local Authority website.
