Waiting list

Children who are not admitted will have their name placed on a waiting list. The names on this waiting list will be in the order resulting from the application of the admissions criteria. It is possible that a child who moves into the area later to have a higher priority than a child who has been on the waiting list for some time. If a place becomes available within the admission number, the child whose name is at the top of the list will be offered a place.

Late applications  

Where there is a good reason for an application being received after the closing date for applications and where it is received before the management have established their list of children to be admitted, the management may consider the application at the same time as all the others that were received on time. Otherwise, applications which are received after the closing date will be considered after all the others that were received on time and placed on the waiting list in order according to the criteria.

Non-routine admissions

It sometimes happens that a child requires admission other than at the ‘normal’ time; such admissions are known as non-routine admissions. Parents wishing their child to attend this school should arrange to meet with the principal. They will be provided with an application form. If there is a place in the year group, a place will be offered otherwise parents will be offered a right to remain on the waiting list.

Refusal of a place

Some applicants may not achieve a satisfactory standard and places will not be offered.
