Admissions Year 8

January 2017

The Criteria for entry into Year 8 for September 2017 are given in our Admissions Criteria  as published in the BELB Transfer Booklet.

Admissions Patterns 

We operate a pool system to which our other criteria (eg eldest, sister) apply.  For this incoming year we offer places to the first 100 applicants based on their score.  The next 15 applicants will be in a pool to which the other criteria are applied to identify those for the remaining places.
