Admissions via Peforming and Visual Arts Aptitude
Kingsmead School is a Specialist School in the Performing and Visual Arts (PVA) and is able to select 10% of students based on their aptitude in Art, Drama and Music, their ability to develop their skills in these subjects and their committment to these subjects. Full details on how to apply for admission under this criteria can be downloaded here. An application form to be considered for admission via the Performing and Visual Arts can be downloaded here.
All application forms for admission under the PVA criteria must be returned to Kingsmead School by 30th September 2013 and work shops to assess students' ability in the Performing and Visual Arts will take place on Saturday 12th October 2013. Results of the work shops will be sent out to parents/carers in time to complete the Secondary Common Application Form by the Local Authority's deadline of 31st October 2013. NB: Parents are reminded that the Secondary Common Application Form must be completed separately to the school's internal PVA application form.
Any fraudulent or misleading information given in support of any application (including under the Performing and Visual Arts criterion) may result in the Governors withdrawing a place which has been offered.
