Letters detailing offers of secondary school places for admission in September 2008 have been posted today (using 2nd class mail) by South Gloucestershire Council. Parents/carers who applied online have been able to view the results on the Internet since 5pm today, provided they remembered their username, password and unique reference number (given at the time of application).
Bradley Stoke Community School is expected to be over-subscribed for the fourth year running. The majority of places (once children with special circumstances have been considered) will most likely once again be determined by proximity of a child’s home address to the school, measured using the “nearest available walking route”.
The school has a nominal intake of 180 pupils per year. In 2007, a total of 66 applicants who had indicated a highest ranked preference for Bradley Stoke Community School were refused places.
An Ofsted report in October 2006 rated the school as “good”. The results of the school’s first year 9 group’s Key Stage 3 SATs (Standard Assessment Tests), to be taken later this year, are keenly awaited.
Bradley Stoke Community School has been selected by the Government to become a combined languages and performing arts specialist school with effect from September 2008. The school is also hoping to be allocated funding for sixth form provision.
