Our waiting list opens on 3rd March

20 Feb 2014, Posted by website administrator in Latest News

Even if you have not yet applied for a Year 7 place at Michaela, there’s still a chance your child could be offered a place.

To be added to our waiting list, please contact Brent School Admissions Service by phone on 020 8937 3110 or by email at school.admissions@brent.gov.uk after 3rd March.

You will need to contact Brent School Admissions Service to join our waiting list even if you live outside Brent. 

The closing date for the second round of offers is 27th March, and any available places will be allocated on 31st March. Several more offer rounds will take place before September.

It is normal practice in schools that some places can become available as people’s circumstances change and families relocate. It is therefore likely that some of our waiting list applicants will eventually be offered a place at Michaela. Applicants who join the waiting list now and live within a five mile radius of Arena House in Wembley Park have an equal chance of gaining a place as those children who are already on the waiting list. This is because there are several rounds of random allocation between now and September.

Our Welcome Day, when we will invite our first Year 7 pupils and their families to meet the teachers and find out about the great progress that has been made, is not planned until June, so you won’t miss out!

Might any of your friends be interested in their child accessing an excellent education that prizes knowledge and tradition? Let them know that it’s not too late!

You can find out more about Michaela by calling 0845 257 5070 or by emailing info@mcsbrent.co.uk.

We are unable to add you to our waiting list as this is being handled by Brent School Admissions Service but if you would like to get in touch with us about our waiting list, please email us at waitinglist@mcsbrent.co.uk.

    I’m really energised to be on this journey with MFS. Why is it called Waiting List though? Are you already full up? If you are not can we just go straight on to List without the Waiting? Just asking!

    • Team Media

      Thank you for joining us on this exciting journey, Amir. We are thrilled that 257 applicants named Michaela as one of their preferences on their secondary school applications, which means that places will be allocated on 3rd March in accordance with our oversubscription criteria. Successful applicants have until 16th March to confirm their place. Along with other state secondaries handled by Brent council, our waiting list will open on 3rd March and the closing date for the second round of offers is 27th March. Any available places will be allocated to those on our waiting list in accordance with our oversubscription criteria, whereby each child living within a 5 mile radius of Wembley Park has an equal chance of gaining a place at Michaela.

      It is normal practice in the majority of schools (and we expect this to be the case at our school) that some places offered to parents/carers will eventually be declined. It is therefore likely that some of our waiting list applicants will eventually be offered a place at Michaela.

      To be added to our waiting list, please contact Brent School Admissions Service by phone on 020 8937 3110 or by email at school.admissions@brent.gov.uk after 3rd March.

    Thank you for your prompt responsiveness Media Team. This is surely the efficiency we will come to appreciate on our journey with Michaela from the foothills of Yr 7 to the mountain peaks of Academia.
