• The school's standard admission number is 120 but the planned admission number for September 2007 is 145.
• Pupils will be admitted to the school at the age of 11 by reference to their ability which will be determined by their performance in entrance examinations consisting of Verbal Reasoning, Non Verbal Reasoning and Mathematics tests set by the National Foundation for Educational Research. These will be of an equivalent standard to the tests which currently apply. The school is part of the consortium of Foundation Grammar Schools in the Slough area.
• Where the number of applications exceeds the number of places available, places will be allocated according to rank order of performance in the admission tests, subject to paragraph 4.
• Where pupils have written evidence of special educational needs (from a recognised authority specialising in the needs of the child) the governors may take account of the pupil's circumstances in deciding whether to offer the pupil a place should they have failed to reach 111 on the 11+ test.
• In the event of one or more eligible pupils being tied for the final place or places, priority will be decided according to the following criteria:
• a brother or sister attending the school at the time of application;
• proximity to the school by a suitable walking route.
• Admissions after the initial year of entry will depend upon the availability of a place, and suitability of a pupil for a grammar school education as determined by admission tests. This includes admission to the Sixth Form where the relevant admission test will be performance in GCSE examinations or equivalent.
• The maximum number of places in the Sixth Form is 250 . The intended number of students to be admitted from outside the school is 20. There is a variety of Sixth Form courses on offer each with different entry requirements. Full details of these are published annually in the Sixth Form Prospectus and applicants should contact the school for information. A supportive school report in the form of a letter from the current Headteacher will be required.
• The school will establish arrangements for appeals against non-admission, which will be independent of the school.
• Details of admissions and appeals arrangements will be published by the school every year.
