We offer in-year places from a waiting list for Years 7 to 10, based on our in-year admissions arrangements. As per our Admissions Policy, we will continue to prioritise as we would do for Year 7 places, apart from offering music scholar places, as these are only offered during the transition into Year 7. Particularly relevant for in-year places would be looked after children and siblings - after which places are offered based on straight-line distance from the school. Please follow this link for a copy of the 2023-2024 policy.

Regarding Year 11, this will not be based purely on straight line distance; instead, if a place is available, an applicant would need to visit the school to discuss whether they are following our curriculum and would be in a position to take GCSEs at the end of the year.
