.Applications for 2020 & 2021.

As the closing dates have passed, we are no longer accepting applications for places at the start of first year 2020 or 2021.  The points system used for processing applications can be accessed HERE

Please note that, as required by recent commencements of the Education (Admission to Schools) Act 2018, the admissions policy is currently under review. The new policy will be published in September 2020. Current applications for 2020 and 2021 will still be processed under the current policy which can be accessed here: ADMISSIONS POLICY

Applications for places at the start of first year 2022

As of 1st February 2020, further sections of the Education (Admission to Schools) Act 2018 have been commenced. This will necessitate some changes to how we process applications for places at the start of first year 2022. 

As of 1st February 2020, we cannot accept any further applications for places at the start of first year 2022 until 1st October 2021. Applications already received (before 1st February 2020) will be held until October 2021 and will be processed with all other applications received during the new application window.

As required by Law, all applications for 2022 will be processed according to a new policy which will be published in September 2020. As our admissions policy was updated in 2017 we do not envisage any major changes to the criteria used to process applications.

If you have already applied for 2022 (before 1st February 2020) you do not need to take any action until you receive notification from us in November 2021. If you are offered a place at that time you will then have until 3rd December 2021 to confirm acceptance of the offer.

However, please note that ALL applications will be processed according to the procedures detailed in the Admissions Policy that is in effect for the proposed year of entry and which supersedes all pre-existing admissions policies.
