Pupils are admitted to the school on receipt of an official request for placement from Sandwell Council and provided that a suitable vacancy exists, admission can take place at any time in the school year.
If following a placement review the school is no longer considered to be appropriate, a pupil may transfer to an alternative placement at any time in the school year.
All pupils leave High Point Academy at the end of year six and preparations for transfer begin in year five. A meeting with parents is arranged to discuss the transfer process and group or individual visits are organised for parents and pupils to establish parental preference. Parents are informed of placement allocations directly by Sandwell Council.
A series of preliminary visits may be arranged by the school to familiarise pupils with their new schools.
