The LA admission criteria is used to decide which students will be allocated places to the College in Year 7 are:

  • Students in the care of a local authority.
  • Students who are on the “list of children subject to child protection plans” and need to attend an alternative school to avoid the abuser.
  • Students who live in the priority catchment area for the College.
  • Students with a brother or sister who will be attending the same school in year groups 7—10 from the proposed time of entry.
  • Students living in the area of a closed school whose parents name one of the linked schools to that area.
  • Children of parents/carers feeling “Domestic Violence”.
  • Students who live nearest to the College.

Attendance Policy

Regular and punctual attendance is a key contributing factor to good progress at school.

Low Attendance levels will dramatically affect the progress that a student makes at school.

We have high expectations regarding student attendance and we work closely with students and parents/carers to achieve this.
