Year 7 Admissions
At Ernest Bevin College we admit 180 boys into Year 7. 60 places are offered to those who achieve the highest scores on their Wandsworth tests. The remaining 120 places are offered to those boys who have an older brother (or sister in the Sixth Form) at the college and to those who live closest. Our Year 7 admissions are co-ordinated by Wandsworth Council although boys can be admitted from other local boroughs.
We welcome prospective pupils and their parents to come and visit the school either on an Open Day or to telephone the school office to arrange a tour.
Applications for entry into Year 7 are coordinated by Wandsworth Council:
Secondary School offers are sent out in March. Once you have accepted a place at Ernest Bevin College, you and your son will be invited in to the College for an 'interview' with a member of the year team in June. This is a chance for you to come into college, complete administration details, order uniform and raise any questions - it is not an academic interview. We also hold an induction evening in early July when your son will get a chance to meet his new tutor and class mates.
All new Year 7 pupils will join in a programme of activities to help all students settle in to the college. For example on the first day of term in September only Year 7 and the Sixth Form attend and students take part in a series of activities to familiarise themselves with the college site. They spend the day with their tutor and other pupils in their tutor group and meet the head of year.
At Ernest Bevin College we have high expectations for all our students in terms of both achievement and behaviour. These expectations are explained clearly to all new students joining the college.
