If there are spaces in your child’s year group, you and your child will then be invited in for a pre admissions meeting. In this meeting you will meet with a member of staff and go through the pre admissions process so that we can gather information regarding your child, their previous education and how we can best support them. Where possible this pre admissions meeting will be held by your child’s year leader, their year group pastoral assistant or a member of the pastoral team.
