The assessment days involve aptitude tests in agility and hand eye coordination along with adapted game scenarios. The results will be combined together to give an overall score out of 100. The minimum score to be offered a place on these grounds will be 80.
Where more children achieve this score than places available, the places will be offered to the top performers as determined by their overall score.In the event that scores are tied for the last place available the tie-breaker will be distance from the Academy.

8am -10.30am on Saturday 7th October 2023.

This will be held at Shenley Brook End School.
Parents will be informed of the test outcome by the 20th October 2023 in writing so that they can make an informed selection of schools by the national deadline of 31st October 2023.
Those who achieved the minimum score required, but were not offered a place will be held on the reserve list under criterion 6 of the oversubscription criteria.
For late and in year admissions, where less than the number of places available are taken, a request for the assessment can be made. It is at the Academy's discretion as to whether an aptitude assessment will be offered.

In-Year Admissions Arrangements for Entry to The Hazeley Academy for Years 7-11
"In year admissions" refers to applicants transferring at any time after the normal age of transfer at the end of primary school. For the purpose of admissions, The Hazeley Academy follows the guidance and regulations detailed in School Admissions Code, published by the DfE. As required under the School Admissions Code, the school subscribes to the Local Authority's (LA) Fair Access Policy.
Parents should be aware that The Hazeley Academy is a heavily oversubscribed school with more applicants than places available and that every year many parents are unsuccessful in their application for a place.
Applications will be considered strictly in accordance with the school's stated admissions policy. The admissions criteria will apply as appropriate for each relevant year group.
In-year admissions are coordinated by the school, the application can be found below.
The Hazeley Academy maintains a waiting list throughout the academic year. The waiting list will be ranked in accordance with the over-subscription criteria and length of time on the list will not be a factor in offering a place. This means that children will move up and down the list as other children are or removed. Being on the waiting list does not guarantee a place at the academy. Waiting lists close at the end of the academic year.
If you named The Hazeley Academy as one of your preferences and were unsuccessful you may wish to appeal against this decision to an Independent Appeal Panel. An appeal form and parental guidelines can be obtained by emailing the Admissions Officer at the academy. All forms, together with any supporting documents, should then be returned to the Clerk of the Independent Appeals Panel.
