Over-subscription criteria

In the event that we are over-subscribed, the School will ensure that a fair and transparent process is followed:

  • When a parent or carer makes an application to the School and there is not a place available, the School’s waiting list procedure will be explained fully and a copy of the Admissions Policy sent to the parent or carer.
  • The waiting list is managed in accordance with the criteria for admissions set out above. The School will advise the parent or carer at the time of application of an approximate timescale before a place becomes available. However this cannot be guaranteed and does not form a binding agreement.
  • When a place becomes available the parent or carer who is highest on the waiting list will be contacted by telephone and in writing requesting confirmation that the place is still required. If no communication is received from the parent or carer within five working days the next person on the waiting list will be contacted and offered the available place.
