In Year Casual Admissions
Between 10 April and 31 December 2017 Medway Council will hold the waiting lists of all Medway Secondary Schools. They will reallocate places that become available to those students who have submitted forms to join the waiting lists for any school.
As with admissions for the year 2017 intake all students wishing to apply for a place at Strood Academy will be required to take a Fair Banding Test which is prescribed by the National Foundation of Educational Research (NFER)
All applicants for places in the Academy will be banded according to the principles of fair banding, using the national profile.
Medway operate an equal preference system which means that parents/carers who intend to put Strood Academy down on their preference form either first, second, third, fourth, fifth or sixth choice will need to take the Fair Banding Test, which will determine what banding group their child should be placed in should they gain a place at the Academy.
The tests will be administered on 16 September and 7 October 2017 – a year ahead of entry. All applicants for an Academy place including those with an SEN statement and those with siblings in the school will be required to take the Fair Banding Test.
