As from September 2019, Waterfront UTC will admit students from Year 9 through to Year 13 (following a public consultation in January 2018).
Waterfront UTC is committed to a straightforward, open, fair and transparent admissions arrangement. The school acts fully in accordance with the School Admissions Code (as revised February 2012), the School Admissions Appeals Code and admissions law as they apply to academies.
These admissions arrangements support the wider ethos of Medway, as a hub of innovation and Waterfront UTC aspires to be the 14-19 establishment of choice for both pupils and employers across the region.
In developing our admissions policy, we have looked to strike a balance between admitting Medway students as well as students from other districts whilst minimising the impact on any individual school. We have also ensured that no individual will be advantaged in gaining admission to the UTC by virtue of where they live.
Read our admissions policy here:
All applications for admissions for pupils in Years 10 – 13 received after 1 September should be made directly to the school. The UTC will then consider all such applications and if the year group applied for has a place available, admit the child unless one of the permitted reliefs apply. Should a student be considered to be hard to place under Medway’s Fair Access Protocols, the admission request will be referred to Medway to be considered by the Fair Access panel, rather than follow the normal admissions process. Please contact our Admissions Officer if you would like to apply for a place on firstname.lastname@example.org . If there are no places available in the year group then the application will go on our waiting list.
