Academy Admissions


Thank you for considering your child, or if you are in Year 11 – yourself - for a place at our Academy. We understand that the transition to secondary school, or moving school to a new sixth-form, can be a daunting time for families and students. We aim to support you through this process as best we can and are always here to discuss any concerns you may have.

We strongly encourage you to visit the Academy before making any final decision. Details of our Open Days and Morning Visits Programme for students and families considering joining us in September 2025 can be found below.

Full details of the admissions process are laid out in our Admissions Policy which can be found at the foot of this page. The process is different for students joining in Year 7, Year 12, and for those wishing to apply for a place outside of the usual transition times.

The Virtual Tour and Principal’s Speech can be viewed here.

Admission to Year 7

If your child is in Year 6 you will no doubt be very excited about their transfer to Secondary Education next year.  We would be delighted if you were considering applying for them to have a place here at Harris Academy Sutton. 

Parents wishing to apply for a place will be able to name Harris Academy Sutton on their Common Application Form. This is accessed via your local authority. Even though we are in the London Borough of Sutton you should still apply using your own LA form.

We offer 195 places each year. 

Like all secondary schools, if we are oversubscribed, children with education, health and care plans will be offered the first places. Looked-after and previously looked-after children will have next priority.

After this, our policy is to offer places to students in the following order:

  1. Siblings of children already at the school;
  2. The children of staff who have been recruited to support where there is a shortage of skilled staff;
  3. The children living closest to the school’s site.

For Parents/Carers who wish to appeal

Parent(s) wishing to appeal against the Academy’s decision should complete an Appeal Form stating the reason for the appeal based on the published Admissions Criteria. Appeal forms are available from the Academy Admissions Manager by emailing Appeal

Completed forms should be sent for the attention of: Admissions Office, Harris Academy Sutton,  2 Chiltern Road, Sutton, SM2 5RD.

The appeals will be heard in private by an Independent Appeal Panel. The Clerk to the Appeal Panel will make an appointment within a reasonable time.

Please note that:

  • Appeals may be made in English or the parents’/carers’ first language.
  • Only one appeal per application is allowed.
  • Appeals are conducted online, and you may be supported by a friend
