Places will be allocated to pupils who have an Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan that names the school as appropriate provision.

Oversubscription criteria

Where there are more applications than places available, priority will be given in the following order:

  1. Looked after children and previously looked after children
  2. Pupils who live in the linked areas and who have an older brother or sister continuing at the school at the time of admission of the younger child
  3. Other pupils who live in the linked area of Grange Park*
  4. Pupils who live in the linked area of Wootton, Wootton Fields, Courteenhall and Quinton**
  5. Other pupils who do not live in the linked areas and who have an older brother or sister continuing at the school at the time of admission of the younger child
  6. Other pupils

Tie-breaker

If the admission number is exceeded in any criteria priority will be given to those who live closest to the school. Distance is measured from the applicant’s property, to the address point of the school. It is measured on a straight line basis using a geographical information system.

The linked areas

*Grange Park is defined by the development east of Saxon Avenue bounded by the M1 to the south, Quinton Road to the east and Bridge Meadow Way/Little Field and Lark Lane to the north.

Brother or sister (sibling)

A brother or sister (sibling) is defined in these arrangements as children who live as brother or sister in the same house (within a family unit) including natural brothers or sisters, adopted siblings, stepbrothers or sisters and foster brothers and sisters. The sibling must be in the school at the time of application and continuing at the school at the proposed date of admission.
