In year admissions

Waiting lists for Year 7 entry in 2024
We do not have a Year 7 entry point as we are an all-through school and our primary children automatically move into Year 7. If you are applying for your child to join the next Year 7 cohort you will need to apply via Hounslow Council. Waiting lists for the next September Year 7 entry open in the preceding July. If there are any vacancies in Reach Academy for Year 7 2024 entry we will be applying our oversubscription criteria to this list within the summer term.
However, we will be opening a new school in September 2024 and therefore, for the first time in 5 years families will be able to gain admission to Year 7 by applying to join Reach Academy Hanworth Park. Click here to find out more about the admissions process.
