We are currently consulting on our Admissions Policy for 2019 and would be interested in your views. The consultation period will be from Friday 7 December to Friday 21 December. As a result of reviewing the changes in the GCSE grading system we are formally proposing to amend the academic entry requirements to the School. This would see a change from 5 six grades at GCSE to 5 five grades at GCSE with sixes expected in a student’s chosen subject. In subjects not previously studied at GCSE (e.g. Economics and Psychology) we have included subject specific criteria based around a grade five. Due to the academic demands associated with Maths and Science, we are proposing to increase the entry requirements in those subjects to a grade seven at GCSE. The proposed changes would also give the Head of School and Executive Principal the opportunity to review individual applications on a case by case basis. We are not proposing any changes to the priority for places criteria.

To make your views known please email in order for Governors to consider all proposals.
