Wallington County Grammar School

Mid Term Admissions

Mid-Term Admission

Throughout the academic year, any person may apply for a place at Wallington County Grammar School for a boy in years 7 to 11. This may be done through contacting the London Borough of Sutton School Admissions Team or by contacting the school directly.

If you wish to make a mid-term application directly to the school, please email Mrs Waters the Admissions Officer on email admissions@wcgs.org.uk or mwaters5.319@wcgs.foliotrust.uk and state that you wish to make a mid-term application. You will then be sent back a short email confirming what information is required to be provided in order for this to be done.  

It is unlikely there will be any vacancies in the year group you are interested in, as our school is normally full and it is rare that any vacancies arise, so the applicants' details will be held on an Entrance Exam Waiting List. Entrance Exam Waiting Lists are maintained for each year group between Year 7 and Year 11 and in the if a vacancy were to arise, all boys who have registered an interest either directly with the school or the London Borough of Sutton for the year group with the vacancy in, will be invited in to our school to sit an Entrance Examination to determine eligibility (please note that it is not possible for boys to sit an Entrance Examination twice for the same academic year of entry). 

Success in an Entrance Examination does not mean that a place will be offered to join our School as it is likely we will pass a few boys but may only have one vacancy in a year group.

The school would apply our oversubscription criteria. If you wish find out more, please refer to the Admissions section of this website and read the Admissions Criteria & Arrangements document relevant to the year of entry. 

Entrance Exam Waiting Lists are maintained for each year group throughout the year but are cancelled at the end of each academic year. You will be given the opportunity towards the end of the academic year by email to transfer the applicant's details to the next year's Entrance Exam Waiting List if you so wish. The only exception to this is if an applicant's details is already in year 11 so when the year 11 waiting list is cancelled in the summer term, a separate application can be made to the school for a sixth form place for the following September.
