WHSG Admission Policy for September 2016 Entry
Following the recent consultation our admissions policy for September 2016 entry has now been determined by the Governing Body.
The main changes to the policy are:
1. The introduction of 15 places reserved for applicants who pass the entrance
test, are eligible for Pupil Premium and who live in the radius of 6.7km from
2. The reduction from 80 to 65 places for applicants who pass the entrance test,
who live in the radius of 6.7km from the school but are not eligible for Pupil
3. A clarification of how long we will keep entrance test scripts
4. A clarification that it is the Admissions Committee who will decide eligibility
under special medical and or social reasons
5. The addition of Pupil Premium eligibility to the over-subscription criteria for
6. Some changes to our sixth form policy to reference the Pupil Premium in our
over-subscription criteria, to automatically offer a place to internal students
providing they meet the entry criteria and adding some flexibility on the
grades needed to proceed from AS to A2.
Please note that main changes to the draft policy are marked in red type.
The rationale for the main change of introducing some places for those eligible for Pupil
Premium in our over-subscription criteria is to make provision in our arrangements for
disadvantaged pupils reflecting the recommendations made by the Sutton Trust report
on entry to grammar schools for such pupils.
