POLICY NUMBER O10: Student Enrolment
The Deed of Integration section 23 states:
"The Board shall not give preference of enrolment to the parents of a child unless the Proprietor concurs that those parents have established a particular or general connection with the Special Character of the school to the satisfaction of the Board". This is given effect through the application of the Board's criteria for student enrolment selection, which are outlined below.
The Board of Trustees has ultimate responsibility for decisions on student enrolment. In making these decisions the Board of Trustees will take the following two principles into account:
- the maintenance of the Special Character of the school;
- the overall needs of current and future students.
Management of the student enrolment process is delegated to a Selection Committee of senior staff, led by the Principal. The committee will include a senior member of staff to represent the Proprietors' interests.
The make-up of the Selection Committee is approved by the Board of Trustees.
The Selection Committee will report to the Board of Trustees on the outcome of the student enrolment process annually.
Staff and Members of the Boards of Proprietors and Trustees shall not provide written references in support of any student enrolment applications.
