Academy Admissions

At BHA we use Bristol City Council to coordinate all Reception place admissions. The closing date for applications to Reception is in the January for a September place. Places must be applied for on the Bristol City admissions website - please see link below. At BHA we admit 90 children each year into our Reception classes.

Over Subscription

Where the number of applications is greater than the published admission number the oversubscription criteria will be applied.

Allocations of places are made in the following order:

  1. Children in the care of the Local Authority.
  2. Those children with siblings of statutory school age already at Barton Hill Academy who will still be on roll in the September
  3. Those children living closest to Barton Hill Academy as measured in a direct line from the home address to the school.
