Re: 2014 Admissions

I can assure you each individual case was looked at meticulously.
I am sorry to learn of the disappointments of some.
Quite a high proportion of siblings have been offered places.

Re: 2014 Admissions

With apologies to all those still waiting ...
100 boys and 100 girls have been invited back for the yr 7 residential phase in January.
