Admissions arrangements (Current Academic Year)Admission Arrangements for 2017/18 are here, further years can be found following the link.
Exclusions arrangementsWe reserve the right to use exclusion from school on either a fixed-term or permanent basis. Decisions to apply this sanction rest with the Executive Headteacher and Head of School. Exclusion is a serious sanction and must be reasonable and proportionate. Careful consideration must be given to the nature of the incident and full account taken of the student’s age, any special educational needs or disability they may have and any religious requirements affecting them. The indicative sanctions table indicates the type of incident that might warrant exclusion, but the list within the table is not exhaustive. Reintegration meetings should always follow a period of fixed term-exclusion.

Information regarding exclusions is contained within our Behaviour Policy provided as a linked document.
