West Walsall E-ACT Academy is part of the co-ordinated admissions arrangements operated by Walsall Council and the Local Fair Access Protocol.
For year 7 admissions the Council will co-ordinate admissions, allocate places to the academy and inform families. Parents/carers should apply using Walsall Council’s schools’ admission process and are not required to complete a Supplementary Information Form to apply for a place.
For children wishing to move to the academy during the academic year, or outside of the normal transfer phase (year 7) these are known as ‘mid-year’ admissions. Mid-year applications can now be made directly to our academy or via the education department at Walsall council. Our academy uses Walsall Local Authority Mid-Year admission application forms and these can be obtained by contacting us on 01922 720741. Once completed this must be returned directly to our academy.
Our academy will then liaise directly with parents/carer and the local authority as required. Parents/carers will have the right to appeal a decision should their child be refused a place.
We encourage parents/carers to ensure that their child continues to attend their named school until they officially join West Walsall E-ACT Academy.
