Admissions Information


In-Year Admissions / Non-routine Admissions

It sometimes happens that a child needs to change school other than at the “normal” time; such admissions are known as non-routine or in-year admissions.  Parents wishing their child to attend this school should arrange to visit the school.  They will be provided with an application form. If there is a place in the appropriate class, then the governors will arrange for the admission to take place.  If there is no place, then the admissions committee will consider the application and information about how to appeal against the refusal will be provided.
