  • Admissions notes
    Not all parts of the catchment area attract free transport on designated school grounds.   There is a separate admissions policy for entry to sixth form. The PAN relates to students who wish to transfer into Year 12. Pupils in Year 11 do not have to make a formal application to stay on in Year 12 but do have to meet the same academic criteria to access courses as external students.   Priority for children at a feeder school applies only during the normal round of admissions before the start of September in new Year 7. It no longer applies for the 2018-19 academic year. Priority for children at a feeder school applies only during the normal round of admissions before the start of September in new Year 7.
