In-Year Applications for the 2024/25 academic year

If your child is currently in Year 6 or Year 11 and you are applying for September 2024 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. 

Applications for the 2024/25 academic year are able to be made from 1st June 2024.  To apply for a place in the school, parents must complete 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.  If you apply during the month of June, you will receive a response to your application on 1st July when applications for the next academic year are processed.  Applications made from 1st July 2024 onwards should receive notification of the outcome of the application by email within approximately 10 school days.  If your application is unsuccessful, your son will be added to the waiting list, if this is requested on your application, and you will be given details of how to appeal the non-allocation of a place to 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 2025 without you being required to provide any further information to us.  If a place becomes available and your son is successful in a waiting list run, we will contact you immediately by telephone in the first instance to offer the place. 

From 1st June 2025 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 2025.  If you wish your son to remain on the waiting list for the following academic year, you must ensure that a new application is made, as the waiting list starts afresh each July 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.
