Admissions criteria will be offered according to the following criteria, used in this priority order.


  • places will be offered firstly to Looked After Children i.e. children who are looked after by a public authority and are in public care, and previously looked after children who were adopted, or subject to a residence order, or special guardianship order, immediately following having been looked after. Applications made under this criterion must be accompanied by details of circumstance and professionally supported evidence (e.g. from a social worker).
  • places will be offered next to children who have a brother or sister, including an adopted, foster, half- or step-brother or sister, living at the same address and attending the same school at the time of admission.
  • places will then be offered in cases of exceptional family, social or medical need (which must be described on the application form and verified by professionally supported evidence), which makes the school concerned the most suitable one for the individual child;
  • the remaining places will be offered to children who live nearest to the school, as measured using a straight line. Distance will be measured from the home address to the main school entrance on Fullers Way North. All distances will be measured using Kingston Council School Admissions computerised Geographical Information System.

The admissions criteria does not give priority to parents who wish to apply to the school solely on the grounds that they require a single sex education for their child.

If two applicants live the same distance from the school, random selection by the drawing of lots will be used to allocate the place.


Children with a statement of special educational needs

Children who have a Statement of Special Educational Needs will be offered a place if the School is named in their Statement in accordance with the Education Act 1996 and the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice.


Waiting List

The waiting list will automatically consist of the names of unsuccessful applicants who have not had a higher preference offer. This list will be held in criteria order and will include any late applications.

Names of girls who have had a higher preference offer, or who did not originally name the school as a preference, can be added to the waiting list. These names will be added to the list in criteria order regardless of the date the application was received.

The waiting list will be held until July 2016. After this date parents will have to request in writing to have their child's name added to the waiting list.


Late applications

  • Late applications will be considered only after all aplications received by the closing date have been considered.
