Sibling places

I've noticed on the boards, that since the changes to the bursaries (from Sept 2012), many families have had younger siblings turned down for places. Whilst I totally understand that due to the academic nature of the school, sibling places aren't given by right: I am concerned, having just applied f...

Sibling bursaries

Since our son started they have changed the way they calculate the bursary provision for new applicants including siblings (from sept 2012). Does anyone have an...

Re: 3rd form GCSE options

We've not received anything to do with option selection. As the parents evening is now only 3 weeks away, I'm not too happy at being so in the dark about the process. Can anyone throw any light on the subject?

Re: Sports kit

We are about to do the dreaded shoe / trainer / football boot shop for our son who is due to start in Sept 11. The clothing lists state that trainers have to be white (seriously, are they mad!), my question is how white? Having trawled through the internet to get some idea I have yet to see any whit...

We pay £15 per month but f...
