    • School closure in the event of adverse weather

      Very bad weather and road conditions may make it advisable to close the school earlier than usual to help girls with difficult journeys to get home, although it would be only under very exceptional circumstances that the school would close significantly early. The school will alert parents to this decision by text message and e-mail via the Schoolcomms electronic service that we have in school. Therefore, please would you kindly ensure that we have a current mobile telephone number and e-mail address so that you will receive this information should we need to make contact with you? In the event of a school closure while school is in session, all students will be dismissed from school unless parents record in their daughter’s School Planner their wish for their daughter to remain in the school building until collected. In the event of early closure, it is important that each girl knows exactly what she should do to get home. I should, therefore, be grateful if you would discuss with your daughter, how she is to make her way home in very bad weather, e.g. whether she is to wait to be collected from school, to start the journey home by bus, or to start walking. It is important that you work out together an agreed route that you both know. This detail then needs to be added to your daughter’s School Planner and signed by yourself. If your daughter should arrive home earlier than usual, it would be advisable to make arrangements for her to go to a friend or neighbour if there is no one at home, or to let herself into the house if you are happy for her to do so. In the event of waking up to severe weather conditions, the school will send a text message and e-mail via the Schoolcomms electronic service to all parents to notify of a school closure. We will also post this decision on the school website. The school will endeavour to have announcements made by 7.00am. If there is no definite announcement about the school by 7.00am, it can be assumed that there has not been a closure and school is open as usual.

These are that students will usually be expected to have achieved a minimum of 6 GCSEs at grades 5 (or B where legacy GCSE) or above, including Mathematics and English Language, with a minimum average points score of 6 from her best 6 subjects. In addition to the Sixth Form’s minimum academic entry requirements students will need to satisfy minimum entrance requirements to the courses for which they are applying. If either internal or external applicants fail to meet the minimum course requirements they will be given the option of pursuing any alternative courses for which they do meet the minimum academic requirements. Course requirements are published annually in the School’s prospectus and on its website. Subjects which are not GCSEs but deemed to be equivalent to GCSEs are not accepted. The Admissions Committee reserves the right to make the final decision on the application of the entry requirements. Application Procedures Internal students in the current Year 11 are viewed as automatic applicants to the Sixth Form and will be admitted subject to meeting the entry requirements. There are a variety of opportunities for these students to receive advice and guidance from both students and staff at the school, including attendance at a meeting with a senior member of staff to discuss option choices. Each external student wishing to join the Sixth Form must apply in writing by completing an application form. She will then be invited to come into school for a meeting with a senior member of staff who will provide advice on options and entry requirements for particular courses. Allocation of places/Oversubscription Criteria ​ Initially, conditional offers of admission to Year 12 will be made and these will be confirmed following the publication of GCSE results. When there are more external applicants that satisfy all aspects of the academic entry requirements, priority, will be given in the following order: 1. A “Looked After Child”7, or a child who was previously looked after but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, residence, or special guardianship order. 2. Other students who would then be ranked in order of merit based on their average total GCSE points score. ​ Joint Lowest Last Place Score In the event that more than one candidate obtains the last score a tie break process will be followed. Priority will be allocated in the following order: 1. Those living nearest to the school. The measurement between home and school will be determined by the straight line measurement from the designated home address8 to the school using computerised software. For applications from the same block of flats that have the same designated point, the allocation will be decided by lot. Where parents have shared responsibility for the girl and the girl lives with both parents for part of the week then the main residence will be determined as the address where the girl lives for the majority of the school week during term time. Parents may be requested to supply documentary evidence to support the address used for the application. 2. In the event that there is a tie between sisters who live at the same address, the place will be allocated to the first born and in cases where this is not known, the allocation will be decided by lot. Waiting List A waiting list will be compiled of applicants who meet the academic requirements for admission to Year 12 but who, in accordance with the admission criteria, cannot be accommodated. Those on the waiting list will be ranked in accordance with the oversubscription criteria set out above. Once admitted to the Sixth Form, each student will enter into an agreement with the school. That agreement will outline what students can expect from the school and what the school will expect from each student. If no place is offered, parents and students will be informed of their right to appeal. ​ 7 A 'looked after child' is a child who is (a) in the care of a local authority, or (b) being provided with accommodation by a local authority in the exercise of their social services functions (see the definition in section 22(1) of the Children Act 1989). 8 The normal place of residence on weekdays and nights.
