In Year Admissions
We look forward to welcoming new students to Brakenhale at any point in the academic year. We are a school where students wear their uniform with pride, they behave extremely well and where teachers teach lessons so that students can succeed with their learning.
We appreciate that moving to a new school is a huge adjustment for students and their families. Please find more information in our booklet below and if you have further questions please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to meeting you and working together.
Brakenhale School is part of the Local Authority - Bracknell Forest Council's - Co-ordinated Admissions Scheme for In-Year Admissions. Applications for admission to Year 7 after 1st September and for admission into Years 8 to 11 must be made to the Local Authority in which the school is situated using their In-Year Application Form. If you wish to apply for a place at Brakenhale School, you must name the school as one of your preferences on the application form and return it to Bracknell Forest Council.
Where there are more applicants than places available, the school will maintain a waiting list according to the oversubscription criteria detailed in the school’s admission arrangements without regard to the date the application was received or when a child’s name was added to the waiting list.
Positions on the waiting lists may go down as well as up. This is because other children might be added to the waiting list who have a greater priority for a place against the school’s admission criteria; for example, when new families move into the area or when other families who had not previously named Brakenhale School as a preference, ask to go on the waiting list after the initial allocations date.
