Broomfield School's admissions are managed by Enfield Council.
Broomfield is a non-selective school
The following guide will help to explain the processes that you need to complete to apply for your child to come to Broomfield.
New Year 7 pupils start at Broomfield
All year 7 students do a CATs test and have their photos taken and up loaded to the school system. CATs (Cognitive Abilities Tests) are IQ tests that assess a range of skills. The tests look at reasoning with three types of symbols: words, numbers and shapes or figures, i.e. verbal reasoning, non-verbal reasoning and Quantative reasoning.
IN YEAR ADMISSIONS
If you are new to the area and want your child to come to Broomfield School or if you want to change from another local school then you will need to contact the Enfield Secondary Admission Services on 020 8379 1000 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
OVER SUBSCRIPTION CRITERA
In the event of over subscription we will offer places to applicants in this order:
Category 1. Children in public care (looked after children) and all previously looked after children
And then Category 2. Children who have a sibling at Broomfield School who is on our school roll at the time of the proposed admission.
And then Category 3. Children for whom Broomfield School is appropriate on exceptional medical grounds.
(Applications under this criterion will only be considered if they are supported by an attached written statement from a doctor. This must demonstrate that there is a very specific connection between the child’s medical need and the school.)

Appeals against non-admission are dealt with by an independent panel. Details of admission and appeal arrangements are published each year. Broomfield school is committed to the co-ordinated approach to admissions administered by the London Borough of Enfield.
