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 appeal 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.
