This is available below and should be returned to the school’s Admissions Officer. In the event that there are more than 60 first preference applications for places in Reception at Sir Henry Fermor School, the applications will be ranked according to the oversubscription criteria set out below using the information given in the Supplementary Form.
If you have not been offered a place at Sir Henry Fermor School, the law entitles you to appeal against the decision to an Independent Appeal Panel.
