Oversubscription Admissions Criteria

1. Looked after or previously looked after children.

2. Children with a brother or sister already at the school, who will still be in attendance, including in the sixth form, in September 2019, where a brother/sister is defined as: having the same two natural parents; having one common parent; having a ‘step’ sibling relationship; legally adopted or fostered by the same parent(s).

3. Children of staff who are employees at the school.

4. Children who live nearest to the school. Distance between home and school will be a straight line measurement from the front door of the pupil’s residence to the front gates of the school on the drive leading to the school’s main entrance doors and reception. The local authority uses a computerised system, which measures all distances in metres. Ordnance Survey supply the co-ordinates that are used to plot an applicant’s home address within this system.

Special Educational Needs

Any child with a statement of special educational needs is required to be admitted to the school that is named in the statement. This gives such children overall priority for admission to the named school. This is not an oversubscription criterion.
