We usually have no places available to accept in-year admissions and have waiting lists for places.
We maintain a waiting list if we receive an application for a year group which has more than 210 students already on roll. The order of this waiting list is determined by our Admissions Policy; it is not first come, first served.
The order of priority for the waiting list if we are oversubscribed in a particular year group is currently:
- Looked after children
- Sibling link
- Attends Catmose Primary School
- A child of staff at the College
- Children who live nearest the College by distance
Please read the Admissions Policy here for an explanation of these terms and a more detailed explanation of the admissions process. It is this policy that we follow, in order that student admissions to the College are determined in a fair and objective way. If a child is refused a place there is a right of appeal; this process is also described in the policy. The Admissions Committee convene during the third week of each month throughout the academic year. All In-Year applications are considered at this meeting. If your application is unsuccessful you have a right to appeal.
Appeals will normally be held within 20 working days of them being lodged.
