    Internal candidates

    Internal students will be given priority for places in Year 12. Any remaining places will then be open to external candidates.
    All candidates will have a discussion about appropriate subject choice with a member of the school’s senior staff. That discussion will take into consideration:
    1. Predicted/achieved GCSE grades.
    2. An assessment from the teaching staff that the candidate is likely to meet successfully the requirements of the course(s) for which application has been made.

    Offers of a place in Year 12 will also be dependent upon:
    The availability of places on the chosen courses (or combination of courses).
    The candidate meeting the application and enrolment procedures by the published deadline.
    Where the number of eligible candidates exceeds the number of places available, the following criteria will be considered:
    Demonstrable contribution the candidate can make to the life of the school. 

    External candidates

    Candidates should be either: from active Christian families living in the areas covered by the Anglican dioceses of London and Southwark, and families active in other churches which are full members of Churches Together in Britain and Ireland; from families practising other World Faiths who are willing to support the clear religious, social and ethical ethos of the school.
    Criteria for entry into Year 12 for all external candidates will be applied in the following order:

    Stage One
    Suitability for the course chosen as indicated on references supplied by the candidate’s current/past school. Consideration will be given to:
     • Predicted/achieved GCSE grades.
     • A very good record of motivation and behaviour.
     • A high level of attendance and punctuality.
     • An assessment from the teaching staff of the candidate’s school that the candidate is likely to meet successfully the requirements of the course(s) for which application has been made.
     • If a candidate meets the requirements of stage one, her/his application will then be considered against the following criteria at stage two:


    Stage Two
    There are places available on the chosen courses (or combination of courses).
    The candidate meets the application and enrolment procedures by the published deadline.

    Stage Three
    If a candidate meets the requirements of both stages one and two, she or he will then have a discussion on careers advice and the appropriateness of subject choice with a member of the school’s senior staff. Where the number of eligible candidates exceeds the number of places available, the following criterion will be used as a “tie breaker”:
    Demonstrable contribution the candidate can make to the life of the school.   

    Appeals
    An appeal against a decision not to admit a student may be heard if the applicant fails to find a suitable place in any of the sixth form partnership institutions. Representation must be made within 14 days of the final rejection.
