Who decides whether a place is awarded?

Corfe Hills School is its own admissions authority and we will be passed details of all applications that name Corfe Hills School.  We will then rank the applications according to our oversubscription criteria.  These are available from the school as a separate document.  Places will then be allocated by Poole LA.

How will we know if we have a place?

All letters offering places will be sent out by the Borough of Poole.  Any applicants who are unsuccessful will have the opportunity to appeal to an independent appeals panel and be sent information about how to do this at this time.

How likely are we to be successful?

  • In short, the vast majority of people who apply to Corfe Hills get a place, wherever they come from.
  • In  2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 all on-time applicants in all categories were successful in gaining a place.
