Admissions Booklet

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.

Section One

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.

Section Two

Exam results

Section Three

This contains our official Admissions Policy, which deals in a more formal way with every detail of the admissions procedure. It is the content of this policy that we apply in dealing with all applications. We advise you to read it carefully.

Further information regarding transferring to secondary school in Year 6 can be found under "Year 6 Transition".
