Year 6 Admissions
If you do decide to enrol with us, we will invite your child to come and experience a week at Fareham Academy before they start in September. We run annual Activity Weeks during the Summer Holidays, as it’s important that we help all children who have chosen Fareham Academy to get to know the school and other new students. Your child would be welcome to come to either of these clubs as we would like all our new students to feel confident in making their transition to us.
There is a high demand from students coming to us from outside our local area each September. We currently have transport to the Western Wards and Whiteley. Our Transport routes are regularly reviewed and depending on interest, we may add extra routes.
We welcome students at all stages of their education and aim to provide a smooth transition from their current school. To apply for a place, please visit Hampshire County Council In Year Admissions.

Admissions Consultation 2021-22
Please be advised that, in accordance with the Schools Admission Code, Fareham Academy is consulting on the basis that;
Admission arrangements have not been consulted upon in the preceding 7 years and
There are some proposed changes to managing oversubscription for admission into Year 7 from September 2021 onwards.
While the majority of the policy remains unchanged from the current version, there are two proposed amendments as follows:
A revision of the medical criterion to include social reasons and what evidence would be required to support applications under the criterion.
A revision to the definition relating to Children of Staff.
As detailed in the attached letter, the consultation period will run from 21st October until 2nd December 2019.
For ease of reference, we have attached both Policies (20-21 and 21-22) and highlighted the proposed changes for 21-22.

Admission Appeals Timetable for Year 7 in September 2019
If you apply for a place for your child at Fareham Academy but are not offered a place on 1st March 2019, parents/carers are invited to make a request in writing to the school for their child to be placed on the waiting list. Pupils on the waiting list are ranked in order according to the school’s oversubscription criteria. Once the waiting list has been established (by 15th March 2019), parents/ carers can contact the school or Hampshire Admissions Team to find out their child’s current position on the list. Any places that become available will be allocated according to the oversubscription criteria of the Admissions Policy with no account being taken of the length of time on the waiting list or any priority order expressed as part of the main admission round application.
