Due to the pandemic and in accordance with government guidance we are unable to host this annual event, however we were delighted to live stream our first Virtual Open Evening on Thursday 17th September 2020.
Please click here to find out more: Virtual Open Evening 2020

Admission appeals 

While most parents/carers will be able to send their child off to start their educational journey at the high school of their preference in September, there will be a handful who may not have been allocated their preferred choice. The reason for this is usually that the demand for places is higher than those available. In this instance you should receive a letter from the school stating why your child has not been admitted.

If we cannot offer you a place you have the right to appeal, which will be determined by an Independent Appeal Panel. The Appeal Form can be downloaded below.

Late applications 

If the closing date to apply for a place in Year 7 for September has passed, you can still submit a late application - please refer to pages 9-10 of the Transferring to Secondary School booklet for further information on late applications (see attachment below)
