The Philip Morant Secondary Place Offers Update – March 2019
As you are aware secondary school places have been offered to Year 6 students today (Friday 1 st March). This year the offer process is complicated by the fact that places for the new school Paxman Academy have been offered outside the usual Essex process. This means that some Year 6 students have been offered a place at Paxman Academy and another local school.
We know that there are a number of Year 6s who have been offered a place at both Philip Morant and Paxman Academy and we urge parents, in particular those intending to take up a place at Paxman Academy, to confirm that place as soon as possible and decline the offer in the other local school. This means that any vacancies can be offered to students on the waiting list of the other schools.
The maximum number (340) of Year 6 students have been offered a place at Philip Morant. At Philip Morant we believe that there may be parents who would wish their child to attend our school but have not yet been offered a place. We also expect these places will become available because there are some students who have also been offered a place at the Paxman Academy and intend to take up that place rather than accept a place at Philip Morant.
If you are concerned about this issue, please contact Ms Clare Bramwell (Admissions Manager) on 01206 545222.
