We are looking forward to welcoming our new Year 7 (Green Ties) who will be joining us in September 2020.
There is more information about what will happen before you join us next year if you scroll down this page.
Here are key dates for those joining the college in Year 7 in September 2020.
31st October 2019- Deadline for applications
Wandsworth Council recommend you complete your form and submit it by Friday 18th October before the half term break. You should submit your application for secondary school places to your home borough (ie the borough where you live).
March 2020- Year 7 Offers
You will receive your offer of a place at Ernest Bevin College in March. Wandsworth Council will post offers on 2nd March 2020. Online applicants will be sent a notification email from 5pm on 2nd March.
March/April 2020- Year 7 places accepted
You must reply to your home borough accepting the place you have been offered by 17th March. You can choose to stay on the waiting list for schools of higher preference. It is advisable to accept the offer you have received to ensure you have a place, this can be declined if you are offered a place at another school you have been on the waiting list for. A second round of offers will be made and places may continue to come available into the summer term as the waiting lists move.
Wednesday 11th & Thursday 12th March 2020
School tours for those who haven’t visited the school before ahead of the deadline to accept offers. Please book a place in advance by telephoning the College Office or responding to your invitation and arrive at 9.15am. Boys must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Week commencing 8th June – ‘Interviews’
Each boy who has accepted a place at EBC is invited to come into the college with their parents or guardians to meet a member of staff. The meeting is a chance to fill in the necessary paperwork and ask any questions you may have – it is not an ‘academic’ or selective interview.
SUMMER OPEN MORNING – Thursday 18th June 9-10.45am
Although this Open Morning is primarily aimed at pupils looking to make the transition next year, you are very welcome to come and see the college on a normal working day. There will be a chance to tour the college, see lessons taking place and the facilities. There will also be the chance to ask questions to the Principal and members of the Senior Leadership team who will be based in the library.
Year 6 to 7 Transition Day (All Wandsworth Secondary Schools) – Tuesday 7th July
Children will be invited to spend a day at Ernest Bevin ahead of starting the college in September.
INDUCTION EVENING – Wednesday 8th July
All Year 6 boys are invited into college with their parents. There will be a short presentation by the Head of Year and then the year group will break up into tutor groups and boys will have the chance to meet your tutor and other students who will be in your tutor group.
FIRST DAY OF AUTUMN TERM – Tuesday 1st September 2020
Only Year 7 students come into college on this first day of term. The Year 7 team will run an induction programme to help the boys get to know other members of their tutor group and to find their way around school.
We also run Year 7 & 8 buddy afternoons during the first half term to help new students get to know boys in other tutor groups and those in the year above them.
