There are two main points of entry to the school, at Year 7 (first year) level and into the Sixth Form. From time to time vacancies arise in other years. Admission in these cases is by means of a test at the school. Parents are requested to contact the school for an application for a Change of School (In - Year) Form to be completed and returned. On receipt of an in-year application, the school will notify the Local Authority of both the application and its outcome, to allow the Local Authority to keep up to date with figures on the availability of school places in Birmingham.
If a place becomes available, candidates on the waiting list in the appropriate year group will be invited to take a selective admission test appropriate to the year of entry and the place will be awarded to the highest scoring candidate above a minimum standard.
