Admissions priority
First priority will go to children with an education, health and care (EHC) plan naming the school.
Remaining places will be given in the following order: 
  1. Looked after children and previously looked after children including those children who appear (to the admission authority) to have been in state care outside of England and ceased to be in state care as a result of being adopted. 
  2. Children with a sibling - living at the same address - who is already attending the school at the time the child will be admitted. Sibling means a full, half, step, adopted or foster brother or sister. This does not include siblings who attend a school's Post-16 provision.
  3. Children with an acute medical or social need for a particular school. This may also apply to an immediate family member. The application must be supported by a letter written by a professional such as a qualified medical practitioner, setting out the reasons why the school is the only one that can meet the child's needs and the implications for the child if they are not offered a place at the school. Work commitments and childcare arrangements are not considered as being an acute medical or social need.
  4. Other children based on home to school distance. The distance from home to school is measured as a straight line from the centre of the home address to the centre of the school site. If two applicants live an equal distance from the school, the offer of a place will be decided by random allocation. Attendance at a school's sixth form, children of staff, work commitments and childcare arrangements are not part of the decision making process.


If your child’s application for a place at the school is unsuccessful parents may appeal against the decision. You can find details of the RBGs appeal process here.
