NEED FOR FLEXI/BOARDING

When it comes to admission to the School, we give higher priority to applicants who have a need for boarding or flexi boarding.  In order to establish the need for boarding or flexi boarding, we ask parents to explain the need, and to provide information from independent parties as evidence of this need.  The sort of information that can be provided includes letters/emails from:

  • Employers which provide details of the working pattern of the parent(s)
  • Doctors/medical professionals explaining why the parent has difficulty caring for the child
  • Social worker giving details of an unstable home environment
  • Child’s current school giving details of the impact of the home circumstances on the child
  • Any other independent third party (apart from family/friends) who knows about the home circumstances of the child

The Admissions Committee of the Governing Body will meet on the following dates in 2019/2020: 8th October 2019; 7th January 2020; 26th February 2020; 3rd June 2020.  Applications for a higher priority received 10 days before a meeting date (e.g. by 27th September for the 8th October meeting) will be reviewed by the Committee.  Details of the decisions made by the Admissions Committee will be sent out shortly after the meeting. 

If you have any questions about the need for boarding or flexi boarding please contact the Admissions Team
