Stage Two test results emailed by the school to parents of girls who have not been offered a higher preference school and are on the waiting list


Our catchment area is made up of an Inner Area and a Designated Area and girls living in these Areas are given priority. Disadvantaged children are given the highest priority in our oversubscription criteria: those who are looked after children or previously looked after children, those in the catchment area who are eligible for means-tested free school meals, or those in the catchment area who are registered as a service child at their current school.

Since the Designated Area was introduced in September 2014, all places have been offered to girls living within it. It is anticipated that the school will continue to be heavily oversubscribed and that the offer of all places will be accepted by girls living within the Designated Area. The Designated Area is the 44 postal districts listed in the documents below and the Inner Area zone is the 10 named electoral wards.
