We are very keen to encourage applicants for our bursaries.  In September 2020 over 220 pupils in school will be in receipt of bursaries and we aim to increase this figure. By 2024, our 400‚Äčth ‚ÄčAnniversary, we would like to be in a position to offer bursaries to 1 in 4, as we work towards our overarching ambition of becoming needs blind. Further information can be found on our website - Bursaries or do ask them to call us if they have questions. We are always happy to answer individual queries and chat to parents.

We normally have around 1300 children sitting the exam and we would expect to interview around 350. We have 168 places for Year 7 with about 40 children joining from our Prep School, leaving almost 130 places to fill. Sample papers are available on our website: Sample 11+ papers

 

Information from Hammersmith Academy

Dear Year 6 Parent/Carer,

We will be holding a virtual Year 6 Open Evening on Thursday 8th October 2020, 6-7pm.

We understand that Year 6 students and their parents may feel they are missing the important experience of a school visit, which can ultimately help decide their secondary school choices.

The Academy’s online Open Evening will recreate elements of that experience and will be a mix of live presentation, recorded speeches and a virtual tour of the facilities.

Booking is required for this online event. Please reserve your place on our Eventbrite page: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/122365427287

We look forward to welcoming you on the evening.

Kind regards

Hammersmith Academy
