IF YOU ARE NOT OFFERED A SCHOOL PLACE;

If we have not been able to offer your child a place, this is because there were more applications for the school than there were available places and not all requests for places could be met. Places are allocated in line with the admissions criteria published and your application was not ranked high enough to obtain a place.

For late applicants: If we have not been able to offer your child a place, this is because the school has reached its admissions number (the maximum number of children that can be admitted to the year group for September 2024) from the initial round of admissions
