2. Where there are professionally supported medical reasons or exceptional social reasons

3. 60 places are offered on the basis of ability, priority being given to those scoring highest in the test. Where there are two or more pupils on the same score, pupils will be ranked according to distance. Only applicants who wish to apply for an ability place must complete the Greenshaw online registration form. Please see page 7 for more details on supplementary forms.

5. Where there will be an older brother or sister at the school at the time of the younger child's admission.

6. Proximity to the school from the pupil's home address, the distance measured in a straight line to the main entrance of the school building, with those living closer to the school receiving the higher priority. The address to be used in the initial allocation of places will be the address on 31 October 2020 unless a subsequent move has been accepted for allocation purposes (see page 18 for more details).

Where two or more applicants share priority for a place, the child to be allocated will be determined by the drawing of lots.
