An application can be made for a place for a child at any time outside the admission round and the child will be admitted where there are available places. An application should be made to the school by completing the in-year admissions application form:

Where there are places available but more applications than places, the published oversubscription criteria, as set out in the admission arrangements for 2022/23 will be applied.
