Pupils are admitted to Bournemouth Collegiate School from rising 3’s to 18 years (Kindergarten to Y13).
Admission is based on:
A prospective parent visit and a successful interview/meeting between the Principal, Heads of Senior/Preparatory Schools, or delegated person, and the prospective pupil(s)
The successful completion of a day visit by all prospective pupils in Reception to Year 13.
Pupils who are in Kindergarten and who wish to proceed into Reception have to reach a certain acceptable standard of behaviour, academic progress and social interaction before a place in Reception is guaranteed
A satisfactory report from the prospective pupil's previous school, nursery, playgroup or day-care centre
The successful completion of entry assessments, completed on the day visit, for all pupils
The completion of a signed declaration by all prospective parents, which informs the School of all known special educational needs of the prospective pupil(s) concerned
Where applicable, the successful completion of 13+CE papers, 11+ entrance papers and any other assessments based on the National Curriculum and/or CE syllabus
Where applicable overseas students may be required to undertake a language proficiency assessment before a place is offered
Bournemouth Collegiate School reserves the right to refuse entry, and progress, into Reception to Year 13, if the School's structure, in the opinion of the Principal and teachers, does not meet the educational, pastoral and social needs of the pupil concerned. Parents have the right to appeal against an unsuccessful application. The Admissions Appeal Panel will be comprised of selected Governors with education and other experiences. This may effect pupils who are already in the School when evidence comes to light that suggests the education of the pupil, and other pupils, will suffer if the pupil in question remains at Bournemouth Collegiate School.
