Offers & Oversubscription criteria
Once the interview and the assessment have been completed, a place will be offered to all eligible candidates, subject to availability. If no places are currently available to eligible candidates, they will be placed on a waiting list. Parents of children who are not eligible will be informed as soon as possible.
Where classes are oversubscribed, offers of places will not be issued on a first come first served basis (ie. in rank order). Applications for last available places will be considered over a reasonable period of time and they will be offered on the basis of a family’s long term commitment to the school and its ethos. To help this process (and in the case of oversubscription in the school) the criteria below will be used to allocate places. Please note these are only guidelines and judgements are made by considering the criteria as a whole :
a) Family reunification.
b) Siblings in the school.
c) Commitment to Charter of Principles.
d) Commitment to keeping children until Year 6.
e) Results school.
Incomplete dossiers will not be studied.
In the case of a renewal of registration and an already established, only complete the “application form”.

We will discuss thoroughly with parents the adjustments that can reasonably be made.
