Admissions to theSchool
Most of the children attending Great Torrington School join at secondary transfer, the beginning of
Year 7. This iswhat is called the “normal point of entry” to a secondary school.
Other children join us “in-year” at other times, once a year group has already started. Thismay be
because they are new to the area and need a school place or simply would like to transfer from
another school.
Theneed to apply
All parents must make an application for their child to be admitted to a state-funded school or
academy. To apply for a place here you should use a Common Application Form provided by a
local authority. Places are not allocated to a childautomatically, evenwhere:
there is an older sibling attending here;
a child attends aparticular linked school;
a parent has expressedan interest at any time in the school; or
the child has always lived close to the school.
