After an offer of a place has been made, all applicants will be required to produce at least three pieces of documentary proof of residence, which includes the Council tax bill, child benefit letter and maybe a utility bill as determined by the school. The home address is the address at which the pupil lives permanently and full time as the principal residence.  Failure to provide current proof of address to the school’s satisfaction will result in an offer of a place being withdrawn. Where a child has shared care and lives at more than one address the school is only able to accept one address. The documentary proof of residence, as determined by the school, must apply to this address. (proof of joint custody/shared living arrangements must be provided)  Brother or sister is defined as a blood related, half, step, legally recognised foster or adopted child living at the same permanent address (as set out in our Admissions Policy).

If you are affected by the High Income Child Benefit charge and have decided to stop Child Benefit payments, HM Revenue and customs have confirmed that you can still request for a copy of your entitlement reward letter although your payments have stopped.  This document is needed as part of the admissions process and must be supplied to secure an offer.
