Please note we do not accept in-year applications from students currently in Year 6. The waiting list for Year 7 is held by the school from the council until 31st December for those who have exceeded the minimum passmark in the 11+ test. The school’s waiting list for Year 7 does not open until 1st January. Any application forms sent for students currently in Year 6 will be disregarded.
If you wish to apply for a in year place for Years 7 – 11 you need to complete the application form here. Please note this does not include Year 7 spaces for the September intake, applications for September Year 7 intake are made directly through the Local Authority.
On receipt of the application form, if there are vacant places in the year group concerned we will invite your daughter, together with any other applicants for the same year group, to sit a series of tests at the school. These tests will be in English, Mathematics and Science.
If, based upon her performance, your daughter is deemed to meet the required standard for entry into the relevant year group/priority group; the Headteacher will offer a place on behalf of the Governors’ Admissions Committee. If there are more applicants deemed to have met the required standard than there are places; then places will be awarded strictly according to the rank order of mean score (2dp), priority category status and pass mark.
In the event of two or more students achieving exactly the same mean score, the over subscription criteria contained in the admissions policy will be applied.
Parents of an unsuccessful applicant have a right of appeal to an independent appeals panel.
Please note: No more than one application may be made in any one academic year. Students will only be tested once for an available place in any one academic year.
