How to Apply for a Place During The School Year (Years 7-11)


To apply for places within the academic year please contact the school directly through the Admissions Assistant, Mrs Helen Sivyer, (Tel 01803 328725), who will send you an Application form and a copy of the Admissions Criteria. These are the same as those published above.


If your preference for a place at the School is for religion we will also require a Supplementary Application form to be completed. A decision will be made based on the Admissions Criteria. If there is a space available, a meeting will be arranged with the Headteacher to confirm arrangements for admission.


If a place is refused because the year group is full you will be provided with details about how you can appeal against the decision. We will contact the Local Authority and advise them of the application.
