The designated area is made up of Priority Area 1 and Priority Area 2 and each area is determined by the postcode of the applicant’s permanent home address. Places will be offered to applicants who are ranked high enough according to the Admission Test scores and who reside within the designated area. This must be the applicant’s permanent home address with their parent/carer) at 31st August preceding the Year 7 entry. The school may ask for documentary evidence to support the application. Only if there are further places available will applicants who live outside the designated area be considered.
For 2020 entry into Year 7, the address which will be used for consideration to be living within the designated area must be the applicant’s permanent address at 31st August 2019. This also applies to applicants who are applying late due to exceptional circumstances.
The ‘permanent address’ is defined as the permanent place of residence of the parent/carer with whom the applicant spends the majority of their time and the address that is used to complete the Common Application Form (CAF). In the cases where parents have shared responsibility for a student, the permanent address will be where the student stays for the majority of the school week (Monday to Friday). The exception to this is if the family are returning from abroad to a previous home within the designated area (documentary evidence will be required to confirm this), are Crown Servants or members of the Armed Forces.
