We have no influence over their decisions and allocation of places. In the first instance please contact Bracknell Forest Admissions. 

Parents requesting a place for their child are welcome to visit the school by prior appointment. Applications for places at schools in Bracknell Forest are centrally managed by the LA and administered each spring for the following academic year.

If your child is refused admission, you have the right of appeal to an Independent Panel.

Applications for places at this school will be considered by BFC in the following order of priority: 
Children with a Statement of Special Educational Needs (or following the 2013 revision of the SEN Code of Practice, an Education and Health Care Plan) that names a specific school must, by law, be admitted to that school. After this requirement has been satisfied the following rules will apply: 

(A) Looked After Children and all previously looked after children. Previously looked after children are children who were looked after, but ceased to be so because they were adopted (or became subject to a child arrangements order  or special guardianship order) immediately following having been looked after.

(B) Children who have either medical or social grounds for admission to a particular school. This evidence must set out the particular reason why the school in question is the only suitable school and the difficulties

caused if the child had to attend another school. The LA’s decision in these matters is final.

(C) Children who live in the designated area of the school and who have a sibling who will still be attending the school at the time of the child’s admission.

(D) Children who live in the designated area of the school.

(E) Children who do not live in the designated area of the school but who have a sibling at the school, and who will still be attending the school at the time of the child’s admission.

(F) All other children

Thereafter radial distance from the school will be considered.
