Admissions Criteria for Hammond School September 2019
For the September 2019 intake the above criteria will be followed.

Waiting Lists

Waiting lists are ranked according to a school's admissions criteria, not the date the application was received or when the child's name was added to the list.

Your Child’s Position on the Waiting List

Your child's position on a waiting list can go down as well as up.  This will occur if other children are added to the list because they have greater priority against the school's admission criteria.

To find out the position of your child on the Waiting List you can call Surrey County Council on 0300 200 1004.

Closing Waiting Lists

Waiting lists are ranked according to a school's admissions criteria, not the date the application was received or when the child's name was added to the list.  Waiting lists will be maintained by Admissions at Surrey County Council until the last day of the Summer Term in the academic year children are admitted to Year 3, i.e. for the 2016/2017 intake this will be Summer Term 2017 and for the 2017/2018 intake this will be Summer Term 2018.  Applicants who wish their child to remain on the waiting lists must write to the school and County Council by 28th July 2017 (for the 2016/2017 admissions round) and by 27th July 2018 (for the 2017/2018 round) otherwise all lists for in year admission are cancelled at the end of each academic year.
