School's Profile
Greenshaw High School is a mixed comprehensive school for children aged 11-19 with approximately 1897 pupils. Of the 314 places available for the September 2022 intake, 60 are offered on the basis of ability.
School Admissions Criteria
Where the school is oversubscribed places will be allocated in the following order of priority:

1. Looked After Children and previously Looked After Children.

2. Where there are professionally supported medical reasons or exceptional social reasons. Applicants wishing to be considered under this criterion should complete the Trust’s Social and Medical Form

3. 60 places are offered on the basis of ability, priority being given to those scoring highest in the test. Where there are two or more pupils on the same score, pupils will be ranked according to distance. Only applicants who wish to apply for an ability place must complete the Greenshaw online registration form.

4. Children of permanent staff where:
• The member of staff has been employed at Greenshaw High School for two or more consecutive years; or
• The member of staff has been recruited to fill a vacant post for which there is a demonstrable skill shortage.

5. Where there will be an older brother or sister at the school at the time of the younger child's admission.

6. Proximity to the school from the pupil's home address, the distance measured in a straight line to the main entrance of the school building, with those living closer to the school receiving the higher priority. The address to be used in the initial allocation of places will be the address on 31 October unless a subsequent move has been accepted for allocation purposes.

Where two or more applicants share priority for a place, the child to be allocated will be determined by the drawing of lots.
