Ark Soane Academy opened in September 2021 with 180 Year 7 places. The school will increase by 180 Year 7 pupils each year until reaching its capacity of 1200 in 2026, once the sixth form is also full.

If the school recieves more than 180 applications, oversubscription of places will be determined as follows:

1. Looked After Children and all previously Looked After Children

2. Children of staff where there is a demonstrable skills shortage (limited to one per form of entry, i.e.  6 a year)

3. Siblings of existing pupils

4. Children of staff who have worked at the school for at least two years and where there is no demonstrable skills shortage (limited to one per form of entry, i.e.  6 a year)

5. Straight line distance – one-third of remaining places will be offered to those living closest to the school; two thirds will be offered to those living closest to the Acton Old Town Hall.
