March 1st 2018 - National Offer Day - all offers of a secondary school place are made by your home Local Authority not the school. 

Your home local authority will endeavour to give you an offer of a school place that is your highest preference based on your choices submitted on the common application form, where there is a place available.

Bristol Cathedral Choir School has 150 places available for year 7 2018 entry. We have received 1292 on-time applications for the 150 places available and therefore we are unable to offer places to every applicant who applied. 

How have the 150 places been allocated for Year 7 2018?

6 places have been reserved at the request of the SEN team for children with a Statement of Special Educational Needs (SEN) or Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP)

The remaining 144 places have been allocated by applying the oversubscription criteria, in order of priority, as set out in the published admission arrangements 2018/19;

7 places for 'Looked after Children' or 'previously looked after children'

8 places for Probationer Choristers at The Cathedral

15 places for Music Specialists

69 places for Siblings

45 places allocated by random allocation

What you need to do now
Parents and carers must reply to offers made via their home local authority by Thursday 15th March 2018.  You should either:
  • accept the place
  • not accept the place and ask to go on a waiting list for a school that you applied for but did not get offered a place.  
  • not accept the place and request an appeal for your preferred school.
  • not accept the place and request new school preferences.
  • not accept the place and advise us that the place is no longer required e.g your child will be attending an independent school.

Following the outcome of the first round allocation of places, 195 applicants were considered for a place in the 2nd round of allocation. (This included 12 late applicants).

There were 16 places to re-offer in the second round.

The allocation of places was as follows:

6 places have been reserved at the request of the SEN team for children with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP).

The school remains oversubscribed; the waiting list was re ranked in line with the oversubscription criteria, in order, as set out in the admission arrangements 2018/19 to reallocate these places.

The 144 remaining places are allocated as follows:

7 places for 'Looked after Children' or 'previously looked after children'

7 places for Probationer Choristers at The Cathedral

15 places for Music Specialists

65 places for Siblings

49 places allocated by random allocation
