Admissions information

Crompton House School recognises that choosing which secondary school your child attends is one of the most important decisions any parent will make. Secondary education provides the foundation for their life as adults. Your child will acquire the skills, knowledge and qualifications they will need to progress onto further education and fulfilling, rewarding careers.

We are a Church of England mixed comprehensive school for pupils of all abilities aged 11 to 19 years.  All pupils are taught within a caring, supportive environment underpinned by the school’s Christian ethos.

We hope our website will give you a flavour of our school and what it can offer to you and your child. Open Evenings for Year 6 pupils are held in the Autumn term each year for parents and pupils to come along to meet our governors, staff and current pupils, ask questions and see our facilities.

Crompton House School is committed to ensuring that no child is disadvantaged in their application for a place in 2021 because of Covid-19.  If you feel you have been disadvantaged in any way by the application process, we invite applicants to provide additional evidence in writing to the Admissions Officer by 2nd November at latest. 

 

Applications for places at Crompton House School are made to the Local Authority (this is the Authority in which you live and pay council tax to) using their online application process.  The Local Authority will provide details of how to make your application whilst your child is in Year 6 and can also be found on their website.

Applicants MUST ALSO submit a separate Supplementary Form directly to the school.  The Supplementary Form is used to score your application against our admissions criteria.  The form must be completed by your place of worship and submitted to Crompton House School directly by the closing date. Please note that the date for submission of the Supplementary Form is often earlier than the online Local Authority application and can vary depending on which authority you are applying to.

The deadline for applications will be advised by the Local Authority and are detailed on the Supplementary Form.

Information from the Supplementary Form is provided to the Local Authority by the School to be used in the event of over-subscription for school places.  All applications are processed and places offered by the Local Authority according to our Admissions Policy.

Supplementary forms are available for download from this page. 

If you are unable to print the application, please send either an A4 or A5 self-addressed envelope with sufficient postage applied.

Applications are processed and places offered by the Local Authority in line with our Admissions Policy. The Local Authority will advise you of the result of your application on ‘Offer Day’ which is usually the Monday on or after the 1st of March each year.

Crompton House School is unable to provide any information about places offered until two weeks after Offer Day.

Crompton House School is regularly over-subscribed in each academic year, therefore it is unusual for places to become available for ‘In Year’ transfer applications. However, in the unlikely event a place becomes available ‘In Year’ places are allocated according to the admissions criteria for the relevant academic year.

Parents wishing to make an application for ‘In Year’ admission should make an online application to the Local Authority using their online application process.  Details of this process can be found on the Local Authority website.

See our admissions policy leaflet below.

The Governors of Crompton House Church of England School have determined that there will be no change to the admission arrangements for entry to year 7 in September 2021. The process for over subscription will be as stipulated in the admissions policy and supplementary form.


The over subscription criteria for establishing faith-based points (criteria 4, 5 and 7) is based on the number of years attending a public place of worship and the frequency of that attendance. With the closure of places of worship because of the Covid-19 virus, all faith-based applications in each criteria are affected in the same way with reduced attendance. The calculation of average attendance, of the attendances divided by the number of years attending, will not give advantage or disadvantage to any particular applicant. All faith-based applicants will have the same break period of attendance from 17th March 2020 (commencement of Lockdown) until 1st September 2020 pending any further periods of lockdown.


In signing the supplementary form, faith leaders are requested to include only actual attendances prior to the closure of places of worship and take no account of the period from 17th March 2020 – 31st August 2020. All other over subscription criteria (criteria 1,2,3, 6 and 8) are unaffected by the Coronavirus
pandemic.
