ALLOCATION of 2016-2017 Year 7 Places - March 2016
We are anticipating a huge demand on places in Year 7 for academic year 2016-2017 and we cannot wait to welcome and work with our new students and parents, ensuring the best possible start to secondary education at NUSA. Parents and carers who have applied for a secondary place and met the 31st October 2015 application deadline, will receive details of the school place their child has been offered on March 1st or 2nd via post or email.
We work in partnership with our family of schools, to ensure that the transition process is clear and inclusive and that pupils and parents are fully supported through this important life change. If you have chosen NUSA as one of your child's preferred schools but do not receive a place at your first preference, please contact us for additional guidance and information; we have a dedicated transition team to discuss your options. We are happy to talk to parents about current choices you can take, all the way through to organising a one to one visit to our school for you and your child.
