We have summarised here the main questions asked by parents and carers at our Autumn Open Evenings. We hope the answers provided are helpful to prospective students and parents.
1) How do admissions work?
Entrance to the academy is based purely on distance from the school – there is no banding or aptitude test, or any other form of selection based on attainment or ability. On arrival students will be grouped into different attainment bands, but we are not selective on entry.
Applications are through the Royal Borough. Online applications are encouraged through this site: https://www.eadmissions.org.uk . If you are applying from Hammersmith & Fulham, Brent, or Westminster please go through you home borough.
NOTE: The academy has a priority area but all parents can apply – even those outside the priority zone or borough.
2) What is the exact Curriculum at KAA?
The table below shows the current number of lessons each week:
Year 7 & 8 Curriculum

3) What does the Enrichment programme involve?
From Monday to Thursday formal lesson finish at 3.30pm and students have the opportunity to attend Enrichment lessons (extra-curricular clubs) from 3.45pm to 4.30/ 5pm. On Friday we finish early (at 2.50pm) and there is no enrichment. The current enrichment timetable can be view by click on this link.
