Parents applying for a place for their child under the School’s second admission criterion which offers priority to “Students who have exceptional special educational needs or have social or medical reasons for them to attend this particular school”, should provide supporting evidence, which could be a letter or a report, from an appropriate professional, for example, a GP, a Social Worker, a counsellor or any other professional working with the student or their family.

The table below shows a break-down of furthest distance (in miles) from the School by which secondary transfer applicants were accepted under the distance criterion in recent years. Please note that this distance changes each year and the statistics should be used only as a guide. The statistics are based on data published on National Offer Day in March and the distance from the School by which applicants were accepted expands as the places are allocated from the waiting list. Please note that with the 30 additional places being offered in Year 7 for September 2018, the distance from the School by which applicants were accepted is likely to expand further.
