Variation to Admissions Arrangements 2021.

Please be aware that, due to the Covid 19 pandemic and the resulting public health protective measures, the academy has applied for and been granted a variation to the Y7 Admissions Policy for entry in September 2021 by the Regional Schools Commissioner. The requirement for applicants to sit a fair banding entrance assessment has now been removed and the Admissions policy will be updated to reflect this change. Places at the academy will be awarded by random allocation, after first applying the over subscription criterion as defined in the Admissions Policy. 

 

Music Specialism

The Belvedere Academy will allocate 10% of the available places (16 places) to those children who demonstrate an aptitude to learn Music. Parents or guardians who would like their daughter to be considered for a Music specialism place need to declare this on the online application form, as this is an opt-in test. Applicants wishing to be considered for a Music specialism place will need to sit an additional 30 minute, multiple choice, listening test.

Due to the rise in the number of Covid 19 cases in the local area and the resulting increased public health protective measures, the academy has applied for and been granted a further variation to the Y7 Admissions Policy for entry in September 2021 by the Regional Schools Commissioner. This means that the Music Assessment Test scheduled to take place on 3rd October 2020 has been cancelled. All places for entry in September 2021 will now be awarded by random allocation, after first applying the over subscription criterion as defined in the Admissions Policy.
