Useful Information

We advise that in accordance with the Admissions Code paragraph 3.6 we have corrected a misprint in our Admissions Policy 2025. The correction relates to over subscription criteria ‘v’ where ‘not’ was included in error. The misprint has been removed so the statement now reads as follows:

v) Applicants who have met the Qualifying Standard, or have achieved the Priority Standard and live within Gloucester (Postcodes GL1, GL2, GL3, GL4). The Priority Standard is not a fixed score but is determined each year by the School’s Admissions Committee. In any year the Priority Standard is lower than the Qualifying Standard but still reflecting a selective ability level. Within the category, applicants will be given priority if they are a looked after child; then if they have a sibling [d] at the School; then ranked by their distance from the school.

The full policy is available below.

We apologise for any confusion the misprint may have caused. Please do contact admissions@denmarkroad.org should further clarification be required, we also have an Open Morning on 13th June 2024 where any questions would be addressed.
