Admissions Booklet - help in making your application

Bishopshalt is a very popular school and each year we are hugely over subscribed. In order to allocate places fairly we have a detailed Admissions Policy which is strictly followed. The aim of this booklet is to help you make your application.

This sets out our procedures and the way we go about assessing each application. We have included some of the most common questions that parents ask about the way we make our decisions. Section One is designed as a general guide.
