Where there is a tie for places in any one category, applications will be determined by random allocation. Each child will be given a number. These numbers will be folded and put into a covered box. A person, independent of the school, will withdraw the requisite number of places to be allocated. A second person, who is also independent of the school will observe the whole process. These independent persons shall be representatives from the Diocesan Board or the county admissions committee.

Residency Definition

The child’s place of residence is the address of the parent or legal guardian with whom the child spends the majority of time during the school week. (Parent(s) or legal guardian(s) may be asked to produce evidence of residency or home address at any time during the admissions process).

Definition of Siblings

The definition of a brother or sister sometimes referred to as a sibling:

  • a brother or sister sharing the same parents
  • a half brother or half sister where two children share one common parent
  • a step-brother or step sister, where two children are related by a parent’s marriage
  • adopted children

A brother or sister must be living at the same address when the application is made.

Multiple births

Multiple births will be given one admissions number. If the last pupil to be offered a place within the school’s published admission number is a multiple birth, any further sibling can be admitted. This may raise the intake number above the PAN but this will remain unchanged so that no other pupil will be admitted until a place becomes available.
