Admissions Policy and Arrangements for 2017 to 2018

PLEASE NOTE - For admissions to the Reception Year in September 2017, our Admissions Policy and Arrangements for 2017 to 2018 incorporates a section relating to applications for children with medical grounds.

This part of our policy has been changed, purely to provide clearer information for applicants as to what information is required to support the medical grounds cited and when this needs to be provided. 

Please see section 2 (i), on page 2 of our Admissions Policy and Arrangements for 2017 - 2018 below for more details.

Note - The school has a catchment area, however, we would like to inform applicants that residence

within the catchment area of the school does not ensure that a place at the school is offered.

Applicants are ranked by distance to the school within each admission category and if places are oversubscribed and/or the school is full in the appropriate year group, the school will not be able to offer a school place.
