Admissions - September 2020
We're looking forward to welcoming a new cohort of students in September 2020. If you would like access to a Pupil Registration Form for the academic year 2020-2021 please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will arrange access.
Here are some extra bits of information that were included in our second mail shot and give a bit more insight into life at Blatch.
- What’s Bugging You About Secondary School? booklet
- FAQs for parent/carers
- FAB Details
- Internet Safety Information
The “What’s Bugging You About Secondary School?” booklet is for students. This includes questions Year 6 students have asked about BMS (thank you to those of you who gave us your questions). These have been answered by Year 7 students. If students have any other questions, please feel free to ask us. The rest of the attachments are for parents and carers.

However, parents/carers may find it helpful to know that, if there are insufficient places available to meet demand, places will be allocated to children in accordance with the following list of priorities:
- Children in the care of the local authority (looked after children), or previously looked after children;
- Children with strong medical or other exceptional reasons for attending the school;
- Children who currently have an elder brother or sister at the school, providing the family home is within the catchment area for the school;
- Children living within the catchment area for the school;
- Other children.
If it should be necessary to decide between children within any of these priority groups, the local authority will use an electronic random allocation system to decide which of the children within that priority should be offered the available places. This system will be independently monitored.
