"You have a legal right to express a preference for which school you want your child to go to. This isn't the same as being able to choose. Where you have told us of a preference for a particular school and there are places we'll try to offer you a place at that school. However, there is no automatic right to a place at a particular school and it may not always be possible to offer a place at your preference".


You have the right to appeal where you're unhappy with the offer made.

If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below.
