The admissions authority for George Salter Academy is Ormiston Academies Trust (OAT) who delegate their responsibilities to the governing body. OAT will comply with the national coordinated admissions scheme for Sandwell which requires all parents to complete a preference form provided by the LA. In completing this form, George Salter Academy must be chosen as one of the 6 preferences on the LA form.
To apply for George Salter Academy, parents of prospective students will be required to complete the online Sandwell Common Application Form (CAF). Parents/carers wishing for their child to be considered for a place based on aptitude for Performing Arts must also complete a separate Aptitude Registration Form, available from the Sandwell LA website and the GSA admissions office. If the application is not successful based on Performing Arts aptitude, the application will then be automatically considered using the remaining criteria. Parents/carers should be aware that the Aptitude Registration Form must be returned to George Salter Academy, Davey Road, West Bromwich, West Midlands, B70 9UW by Friday 6th October 2023.
The academy will liaise with Sandwell Local Authority and other neighbouring Local Authorities in line with the national coordinated admissions arrangements during the process. Where fewer than 250 applications are received, George Salter Academy will offer places to all those who applied.
Where the number of applications for admission is greater than the published number, applications will be considered against the Oversubscription Criteria below.
