When the Admissions Committee has reached a decision, this is communicated to you via email. There are three main possible outcomes:
The candidate is accepted.
If your application is successful and we have a suitable space available, you will be offered a place at our school.
The candidate is offered a space on the waiting list.
Sometimes, we have a number of candidates competing for the same spot, and in such cases, some applicants, unfortunately, have to be offered spaces on the waiting list.
The candidate is not accepted.
Sadly, we do sometimes have to deny admission to candidates. This normally occurs when the Admissions Committee feels that The Shepherd School would not be the most appropriate environment for the child, based on the services we offer and our admission policy. In such instances, we try our best to assist families in finding a suitable alternative.
