In-Year Applications for the 2021/22 academic year
If your child is currently in Year 6 or Year 11 and you are applying for September 2022 entry in Year 7 or Year 12, please do not use this form. There are dedicated webpages for applications to these year groups.
Please see below our In-Year Application Form for use if you are applying for a place at the school outside of the normal Year 7 and Year 12 admissions cycle.
Please refer to our Admissions Policy below which will provide you with details of our application process and over-subscription criteria.
To apply for a place in the school, parents must complete and return the In-Year Application Form. On completion of the Form, the application will be considered against the Published Admissions Number of 215 which also applies for these year groups. When your application is received by us, you will receive notification of the outcome of your application by email within 10 school days. If your application if unsuccessful, your son will be added to the waiting list, if this is requested on your application, and you will be given the details of how to appeal the non-allocation of a place with an independent Appeal Panel should you wish to do so. Should you decide to make an appeal, our Notice of Appeal, together with guidance notes, can be found on the Admissions page of our website.
Once you have received confirmation that your son is on the waiting list, he will remain on the list until 30th June 2022 without you being required to provide any further information to us. If a place becomes available and your son is selected from the waiting list, we will contact you immediately by telephone in the first instance to offer the place.
From 1st June 2022 the In-Year Application form will be updated on our Admissions webpage to enable you to apply for the next academic year if this is required. Applications for the new waiting list will be processed from 1st July 2022. If you wish your son to remain on the waiting list for the next academic year, you must ensure that a new application is made, as the waiting list starts afresh at this point and details are not rolled over from the previous year.
Places can become available at any point during the academic year, as this is dependent upon a change of circumstances for a student currently at the school. As such it is very difficult to predict if or when this will happen. When a place does become available the oversubscription criteria will be applied as described in the Admissions Policy.
If you have any queries in relation to the In-Year Application process, please contact Mrs Shocklidge, Admissions Officer, on 01604 230240.
