Admissions policy

School admission policy : 2016/17 (Agreed)

The School will provide 270 places for pupils in each of years 7 11, together with 195 places in Year 12.

If more pupils apply for places, then places will be allocated according to the following criteria, in order:

1. To children in public care who are due to transfer

2. To pupils living permanently within the Schools catchment area as defined by Norfolk Local Education Authority and shown in its catchment area map. If more than 270 such pupils apply, places will be allocated on the basis of geographical distance from the school gates.

3. Up to 10% of available places will be allocated to pupils living outside the catchment area on a basis of aptitude in the Performing Arts and regardless of distance, provided that their parents assume responsibility for these pupils transport to and from school and the costs thereof.
13 places will be available for Drama and 14 for Music.
Parents must state on the County Application Form whether they are applying for Drama, Music, or both
All pupils who apply will be invited to come to the School on a given day to complete the aptitude test. In Music this will be an aural test and in Drama a practical activity.
An independent assessor will rank applicants in order of aptitude so that places can be offered accordingly
No pupils will be admitted unless they do show aptitude, even if some Arts places then go unfilled

4. To pupils whose elder brothers or sisters already attend the School at the time of admission in Years 7 11, and in Years 12 and 13 if they attended the School in Years 7 11.

5. To pupils not living in the catchment area transferring from Springwoods feeder primary schools, namely Fairstead, Flitcham, Gaywood, Grimston, St. Marthas and Sandringham and West Newton.

To any other applicants up to the maximum number to be admitted.

If the school is oversubscribed from within any of the above criteria (except criterion 4), places will be allocated on the basis of geographical distance of the childs home from the school gates, the nearest having priority. Distance will be measured on a straight line crow-flight basis.

The procedures for and timing of applications will be identical with those for community schools in West Norfolk. Norfolk Local Education Authority provides this information. Parents of pupils applying for places under Criterion 4 (artistic aptitude) should state this on their preference form.

The Appeals procedure for unsuccessful applicants for places will be the same as that for applicants for places at community schools.
