Admissions Process

Year 7 Admissions Process 2021 

To apply for a place at Stationers’ Crown Woods Academy, an applicant must apply through their home Local Authority, in accordance with the Co-ordinated Planned Admission scheme. The Local Authority coordinates the application process on behalf of Stationers’ Crown Woods Academy according to the scheme which is published in their annual admissions booklet.  To apply, please on the link below:


There are 270 places available in year 7 at Stationers’ Crown Woods Academy for September 2021.  All children applying for a place at Stationers’ Crown Woods Academy are required to take a fair banding test, including siblings of students currently attending the academy. The applicants will be split into 5 equally sized bands based on their assessment results.  Within each band our admission criteria will be applied as set out in our determined admission arrangements.  This is to ensure that SCWA has a comprehensive intake and children across the full ability range are admitted.  It is not possible to pass or fail the test, but those not sitting the test at all, will only be prioritised after those children who have sat the test.

The date of the test is Saturday 5th December 2020.  

The Fair Banding Test application deadline was 31st October 2020. The deadline has now passed and applications are no longer being accepted.
