Applications for Year 7 must be made by 31 October the year before starting, in accordance with Sutton’s co-ordinated scheme, and places at Carshalton Boys Sports College will be offered on the basis of the preferences that are shown on the application form. Parents will be asked to rank their preferences (up to six) and these will be considered under an equal preference system.
When Carshalton Boys Sports College is oversubscribed for Year 7, applications will be ranked against four factors which will be considered in the following order:
- Looked After Children (supporting evidence of status will be required from a social worker).
- Where there are supported medical reasons or exceptional social reasons why a child should attend a particular school (refugees and Asylum Seeking children may be included under this criterion, depending on individual circumstance. Supporting evidence of status, where applicable, will be required from a social worker, health visitor, housing officer or other relevant council officer).
- Where a sibling will be in the school, up to and including Year 13, at the time of admission. Please see section 7 for further guidance on the definition of sibling. If within this category there are more applicants than places available, any remaining places will be offered on the basis of proximity of the child’s home address to the school (please see paragraph v).
- Remaining places will be offered on the basis of proximity of the child’s home address to the school. The point within the school to be used in any distance calculation will be the main entrance to the school building. Distances will be measured in a straight line from the child's home address, with those living closer to the school receiving the higher priority. Please see section 8 for further guidance on the definition of home address and the date that the home address applies.
Mid-term applications for Year 7 after 12 September each year and for years 8, 9, 10 and 11 will be ranked and considered using the criteria in the order they are shown above.
