Year 7 Applications for 2017-18 School Year (Children born in 2006)

Posted: August 26, 2016

All parents are advised that applications to Discovery College for Y7 for the 2017-18 academic year starting mid-August 2017, for children born in 2006, are to be made through our Online Admission System via the College’s website > ADMISSIONS > Apply Online, using the General Admission Online Application Form.

This process is different to previous years when applications for Y7 places were made through our website using the Central Admissions Online Application Form.

This change has been brought about by the expansion of our Primary School, which has seen the number of classes in each Primary Year Group increase from three to four, bringing them in line with the four classes in all Secondary Year Groups. We now have four Y6 classes with 120 students as opposed to three classes with 90 students.

Up until the present time, we have had 90 students moving from Y6 to Y7, making it possible to offer 30 additional places by way of the Y7 Central Applications process. In contrast, by the end of the current 2016-17 school year, we will have 120 Y6 students moving to Y7. Any spaces for Y7 for the next academic year will therefore only be available subject to any withdrawals.

Applications for all Year Groups, including Y7, for the 2017-18 academic year can be made starting from 01 September 2016.

Students already attending Y6 at Discovery College are not required to apply for a place in Y7 for August 2017.
