Barnwood Park is a foundation school admitting girls and boys from all levels of ability into Year 7, 8 and 9 from September 2020. We admit girls from all levels of ability into all other years. 

The County Council deals with admissions into Year 7. The school deals with admissions of all other year groups. The standard admission number from September 2020 for Year 7 and Year 8 intake is 180. For all other year groups prior to September 2019 the standard admission number is 150.  

Guidance on admissions procedures is contained in the booklet published by, and available from Gloucestershire County Council, Shire Hall, Gloucester. Advice on the admissions procedure is available from the Children and Young Peoples Directorate, telephone number 01452 425000.  

The right of appeal is to a panel made up of members of the public who are independent of the chosen school and independent of the local authority.  Before launching an appeal for your child to have a place at Barnwood Park, we would urge you to consider whether you have grounds for appeal that go beyond suggesting that your child (like many others) would benefit from a Barnwood Park education.  Please also be aware that the distance between the school and your home address has already been considered as part of the original allocation process so this alone, is unlikely to form sufficient grounds for a successful appeal.
