In-Year Admissions

The number of in-year admissions has continued to increase.  We have a range of procedures to ensure that the transfer is a positive and happy experience.  We like new students to visit Court Fields with their parents before their starting date and have a tour of the School.  Special arrangements will be made to help and support new students during the first few months at the school.  Our experience is that students settle quickly and happily.  Please contact Mrs Emma Lilley on 01823 664201 or SCH.552@educ.somerset.gov.uk to arrange a visit.

In-Year Appeals Procedure for 2020-21

We currently employ the services of Somerset County Council to process appeals and hold Independent Appeals Panel on our behalf.  For details about the appeals procedure please contact Somerset County Council’s Admissions & Entitlements Team.
