Millbank Academy is a non-selective school, and all applications are considered.
With the exception of Nursery class, all mainstream year groups have 60 pupils arranged in two classes of 30. If the school is oversubscribed, applications are considered against the criteria set out below. After the admission of students with Statements of Special Educational Needs where Millbank Academy is named on the Statement, the criteria will be applied in this order:
- Looked after children and children who were formerly looked after;
- Specific medical needs, social needs and special needs where the application is supported by written specific professional advice as to why the admission to the school is necessary;
- Siblings of students currently attending the school who will continue to do so on the date of admission;
- Nearest walking distance to the school – children who live the nearest distance from the school.
Applications for admission to Reception class are managed by Westminster City Council, which recommends using the online pan-London application process. Applications open at the beginning of September for entry to Reception class the following September. Applications close in mid-January, and you hear the outcome in April. If your application is not successful, you can put your child’s name on the waiting list managed by Westminster City Council.
Applications for admission to other Year groups are made directly to the school. Please contact the School Office.
Applications for admission to Windmill class are made in liaison with Westminster City Council. Windmill class is our specialist provision for children with a statement of Special Educational Needs and a diagnosis of autism.
