If a girl is unsuccessful in her application, parents may appeal by contacting the school within the time stipulated in the decision letter from the Local Authority.
FAIR ACCESS PROTOCOL
The school is committed to taking its fair share of girls who are hard to place in accordance with the locally agreed fair access protocol. Pupils admitted under the protocol will take priority over any girls on the waiting list, and this may include on occasion admitting above the planned admission number.
The school will consider late applications in accordance with the procedure in the Local Authority's coordinated scheme as detailed in the secondary transfer booklet. In essence this means that late applicants will be considered after the initial round of offers is made; where the school is oversubscribed this is likely to reduce considerably your chance of gaining a place.
PUPILS WITH A STATEMENT OF SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS
Parents of pupils who have a statement of special educational needs are required to apply for school places separately through the local authority from whom advice is available. If a child with a statement is placed in the school by the local authority before the normal admission round, the number of places available to other applicants will be reduced.
If there are fewer applicants for Foundation Places than places available in any of the ability bands, the unfilled places will become available to all other applicants at the end of the allocation procedure and vice-versa.
If a girl is unsuccessful in her application, parents may request their daughter go on the school's waiting list.
