2019 Admissions Policy - Consultation

In accordance with the School’s Admissions Code, all schools are required to consult on their Admissions Policy at least once every seven years (even if there are no changes in the policy) or where a change in policy is proposed.

The draft 2019 Admissions Policy for The Bishop’s Stortford High School is subject to consultation due to the following proposed change:

Criterion 2

Boys who have a sibling attending the school, in Years 7 - 13, at the closing date for applications will be admitted.

A sibling is defined as a brother, sister, half-brother, half-sister, adopted brother, adopted sister, step-brother, step-sister or a child of parent/carer of a child looked after/previously looked after living permanently* at the same address from Monday to Friday.

*A sibling link will not be recognised for children living temporarily in the same house, for example a child who usually lives with one parent but has temporarily moved or a looked after child in a respite placement or very short term or bridging foster placement.


The Bishop’s Stortford High School have extended the year group to Year 13, from 12 for admittance of a sibling who is attending the school at the closing date of application.

The period of consultation is 20 November 2017 until 5 January 2018.

Parents who wish to comment on the proposed change detailed above should email their comments to before 9.00am on 5 January 2018.

Governors will consider all such comments before publishing the final 2019 Admissions Policy by 28 February 2018.  Only comments relating to the proposed change will be considered.
