Distance boundaries

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 in September 2018, the School offered an additional 30 places in Year 7 so the distance from the School by which applicants were accepted expanded. The School also offered an additional 30 places in Year 7 in September 2019.
