If the school receives more preferences than
there are places available the admission criteria
on page 70 will be used to prioritise all applications.
In such circumstances, some applicants will clearly
be unsuccessful. Therefore, it is advised that
parents/carers consult the admission criteria before
submitting their preferences.
In respect of admissions for September 2006
546 parents expressed a preference for this school
and 342 of these were first preferences. The

There is no guarantee that a similar situation
