12. Any other applicants

Tiebreakers: The governors will give priority to those with a sibling attending at the time of admission. The governors will give top priority to an application within a category where evidence is provided at the time of application of an exceptional social, medical or pastoral need of the child which can be most appropriately met at this school. Where the offer of places to all the applicants in any of the criteria listed above would still lead to oversubscription, the places up to the admission number will be offered to those living nearest to the school.
