Admission into Year 7 in September 2017

Please find below the Admission Arrangements for entry to the school in September 2017.

A hard copy of these arrangements, together with the Supplementary Information Form, will be available in the school prospectus at our Prospective Parents Evening on 15th September 2016,  5.30 to 8.45 pm.  You do not need to register to attend.

Completed forms should be returned to the Admissions Officer at the School by 7 October 2016 if you wish your son to take an aptitude test, and no later than 31 October 2016.  Please ensure the Secondary Transfer Form is completed for the County in which your son lives.

Applicants applying for the Aptitude Tests will receive further details via email by 7 October 2016.  If you have not received an email by this date please contact the Admissions Officer, Mrs A. Williams.


Due to continued high demand for places at TBSHS, it is our intention to admit an additional 12 students above our Published Admission Number (PAN) of 156 for September 2017. We will therefore be allocating 168 places and this will be done in accordance with our existing admissions arrangements, following the existing criteria. As we are not formally amending our PAN, we are not able to increase the number of places allocated on aptitude, so the number of places for aptitude will remain at 15 (7 for music and 8 for sport). If you have any questions regarding this amendment please contact the school’s admissions office.
