Admissions & Catchment


Please click here to see the proposed new admissions arrangements for BGS from September 2018. The proposed change is a minor one which brings our admissions policy in to line with the rest of the Local Authority.

Essentially, we are proposing to amend our oversubscription criteria to include boys who have attended our feeder primary schools since the beginning of national curriculum year 3. Currently boys who attend a feeder
primary but are not in our catchment area are not taken in to consideration on the oversubscription list. We feel that it is reasonable that, like elsewhere in the authority, they are given a chance to attend the same secondary school as their peers.

If you would like to comment on the proposed arrangements then please write to or e-mail Denise Morris, Clerk to the Governing Body at the school – by Friday, 27 January.

Our Published Admission Number for 2017/18 is 140.

As the number of Y6 boys in the catchment area is below 140 this year we anticipate that we will have places available for out of catchment boys in September 2017.

For detailed guidance on admissions please see the LA website
