The details

The Sir Simon Milton Westminster University Technical College will manage its own admissions for entrants in 2018 and applications should be made directly to the school. Copies of the application form are available from Admissions at the Sir Simon Milton Westminster University Technical College and on this website.

If the number of applicants matches, or is fewer than the number of places available, then all applicants will be offered a place.

Places are offered in four Geographic Areas designated on the list below. Each Geographic Area will be allocated a proportion of the remaining places after priority groups (statemented children and LAC/PLAC children) are admitted.
If one or more Areas are under-subscribed all applicants from those areas will be admitted.
All children with a statement of Special Educational Need (SEN) or Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) where the Sir Simon Milton Westminster University Technical College is named on the statement/plan will be admitted, and then the over-subscription criteria will apply in the following order.

    1. Looked After Children and Previously Looked After Children will be offered places first.
    2. Places will then be offered to children living in the four Geographic Areas:

Each area is first allocated a proportion of the remaining places after LAC/PLAC and statemented pupils are admitted at Key Stage 4. 40% of the places will be allocated to Area 1, and each of Areas 2, 3 and 4 will be allocated 20% each of the remaining places.
If any area is oversubscribed, random allocation will determine which pupils make up those to be admitted.
If any area is undersubscribed, all applicants from that area will be admitted and the UTC will then fill up to PAN by random allocation applied to any applicants from over-subscribed geographic areas who were not initially allocated a place.

  1. Places will be allocated to children living outside the four Geographic Areas if the UTC is still not full after the application of criteria 1 and 2 above.

The four geographic areas across London can be found in the Admissions policy document
