The over-subscription criteria for the Sixth Form will be applied where the number of external applicants who meet the minimum entry requirements for the Sixth Form exceed the published admission number and admission will be determined in accordance with the following criteria:

  1.  Children in care (children in public care) and children who were in care, but ceased to be so because they were adopted (or became subject to a residence order or special guardianship order).
  2. Children living in the catchment areas for primary schools:-

    Gladstone Primary School, Highlees Primary School, Longthorpe Primary School, Middleton Primary School, Ravensthorpe Primary School, Thorpe Primary School and West Town Primary School.   This includes children living within the above catchments who may be attending Sacred Heart Primary School and other primary schools.
  3. Up to 5 places in any one academic year for children of permanent employees whose place of work is Jack Hunt School at the time of admission. Where the member of staff has been employed for more than 2 years and/or has been recruited to fill a vacant post for which there is a demonstrable skill shortage. Where more than five applications are received preference will be given to permanent employees with the longest period of continuous employment by the school.
  4. Where the child has a brother or sister attending the school at time of admission (the definition of brother or sister is contained in the local authority admissions booklet issued by your primary school).
  5. Any other applicant.

 Where the number of applicants exceeds the number of places within any of the above criteria priority will be given to those living nearest the school measured in a straight line between the centre of the home address and the centre of the school site.

Where the over-subscription criteria are used, applications received from external applicants after the published date will be considered last.

Where governors have made an offer of a place in the Sixth Form on the basis of an intentionally misleading application the offer of a place will be withdrawn.
