Admissions Policy

There is no guarantee of a place for children living in the priority admission area. In the event of oversubscription places will be allocated using the following criteria in the order given:

  1. Looked After Children and previously looked after children (see definition on pages  13-14);
  2. children of staff members where:
    a)  the member of staff has been employed at the school for two or more years at the time at which the application for admission to the school is made, and/or
    b)  the member of staff is recruited to fill a vacant post for which there is a demonstrable skill shortage;
  3. children living in the outlying priority admission area* of the school with a sibling attending the school;
  4. children living in the outlying priority admission area* of the school;
  5. children living in the Town priority admission area* of the school with a sibling attending the school;
  6. children living in the Town priority admission area* of the school;
  7. children living outside of the school’s priority admission area* with a sibling attending the school;
  8. remaining applications.

In the event of oversubscription within any of the above criteria, priority will be determined by straight line distance from home to school, those living closest   being given highest priority. Exceptional medical circumstances (supported by medical evidence) may override the above criteria (other than Looked After Children and previously looked after children).

Waiting list held until: end of autumn term.

Admissions to Sixth Form

The school is proposing to admit 150 students each year to the Braintree Sixth Form, including at least 50 external applicants. Admission to the Sixth Form will be by reference to qualification to a particular Sixth Form programme of study. The Sixth Form prospectus will publicise the range of programmes, the specific entrance requirements, the number of places on each programme and, in the event of oversubscription, the tie-break mechanism that will be applied.
