I am trying to understand - if RC child got low score, will that child be in priority order compare to Other faith who got a higher score?

Also, is there 13+ formal entry to St.Bernard's?

Thank you

You can see here how St Bs has allocated places in the past.

I'm assuming you mean a low score of at least 111?

I don't believe there is a formal 13+ entry, it's a case of whether or not a place is available in the year group, if there is, the child would take an in-house exam, the exception would be if the child has previously sat the 11+ and not achieved the qualifying score, in that case they won't be considered again until Y12.

Hi,
I'm sorry but even after reading the above link is not very clear for me if the RC child who has gets the eligible standardised score of 111 get priority to another child non RC who achieves a higher score?

Thank you in advance

This is the oversubscription criteria https://stbernards.s3.amazonaws.com/upl ... 1567320163

1.Catholic Looked After children.
2.Practising Catholic children.
3.Catholic children.
4.All other Looked After children.
5.Children from other Christian Churches.
6.Children from Other Faiths who attend a Slough Catholic Primary School within St Peter’s Pastoral Area, (Holy Family Catholic Primary School, Our Lady of Peace Catholic Primary School, St Anthony’s Catholic Primary School, St Bernard’s Preparatory School and St Ethelbert’s Catholic Primary School) and live in Slough with a permanent home address.
7.Children from Other Faiths who attend a Slough Catholic Primary viSchool within St Peter’s Pastoral Area (Holy Family Catholic Primary School, Our Lady of Peace Catholic Primary School, St Anthony’s Catholic Primary School, St Bernard’s Preparatory School and St Ethelbert’s Catholic Primary School).
8.Children of Staff
9.Any other children.

Those at category 1 have the highest priority of an offer and those at category 9 have the lowest priority. So all qualified RC children will be admitted before non RC children regardless of score.

According to this document St B made the following offers last year. https://stbernards.s3.amazonaws.com/upl ... 1567320082
Quote:
All eligible Roman Catholic & other Christian applicants admitted; those practising children of other faiths achieving an average score of 114 or above living within a distance of 6.49 miles to the school

Is St Bernard’s Preparatory School what it sounds like? Or just a quaint old Slough name for a kind of state primary school? Looks perilously close to contravening the Admissions Code (the bit prohibiting the naming of indies as feeder schools for state secondary schools) to the casual observer.

It is a private prep school - was part of the whole St Bernard's / St Joseph's setup by the look of it. Inclusion of it in the list of schools was probably agreed in the dark ages

So was the previous definition of being in catchment for our local grammar schools - attending a(any, including the 5 private ones) primary school within the unitary Borough of Southend on Sea. But with the change in the law on admissions, the legal advice to the grammar schools was a) that they couldn't keep it as it was, b) they couldn't change it to 'living within the borough' and c) they could change it to having named feeder schools, but d) the indies could not be included. So we ended up with a priority admissions area which includes the postcodes wholly within the borough, but also the neighbouring ones, which are administratively not in Southend.
