A summary of the changes are as follows:

Admissions Policy Years 7-11

  • The key change is to clarify that the criterion for children of staff members covers members of staff who have a permanent contract of employment with either The Beacon School or GLF Schools.
  • Further clarity is also provided on the definition of sibling, multiple births procedure, tie breaker and consideration of out of year applications and a new section on in-year applications has been added.
