Admission into Year 7 in September 2019

December 2018

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 2019. 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.


Please find below the Admission Arrangements for entry to the school in September 2019
