The information provided is for admission into Years 7-11 only. Applications for an In-Year Transfer will normally be processed within 10 school days of receipt.

As its own admission authority, the school will consider the application in strict accordance to the oversubscription criteria, set out below. The full Admissions Policy can be viewed on the school’s website.

‘Looked after’ children, including ‘previously looked after’, as defined by the School Admissions Code, 2014

Children who will have an older sibling attending the School up to and including Year 11 at the time of the applicant’s proposed admission. This includes half/step or adopted brothers or sisters, who are living at the same address as part of the same family unit. Except when the older sibling obtained a place solely because he or she was in possession of a Statement of Special Educational Needs that named Broadoak School.

Children who live nearest to the School, measured in a direct straight line from the front door of the child’s permanent place of residence to the main entrance of the School. This will be measured using property co-ordinates provided through a combination of the Trafford Local Land and Property Gazetteer (BS7666), other LA data and Royal Mail Postal Address Information.

Where a request for an  in year transfer is submitted, a written offer will be made to include arrangements for admission to the school. Allocated places must be taken up by the date specified in the offer letter.

Where no place is available, you will be notified of this in writing and be invited to join the waiting list for the particular year group that you applied for. These waiting lists are ranked in exactly the same order as the criteria published above for the allocation of places, and not based on the date either their application was received.

Unsuccessful parents/carers can request an appeal hearing, where an independent panel can allocate a place at the school if appropriate.

In all cases, parents/carers will be requested to provide proof of residency. It is important to make sure that the information you provide is factually correct. Please note that any offer made will be withdrawn if it is found that the parents or carers have given false information.


If your child has been unsuccessful in achieving a place at Broadoak School you have the right to appeal against this decision.
