Supplementary information forms

Please note some schools, such as faith schools, require the completion of a supplementary information form (SIF). This is so that they can decide which pupils should have the highest priority when making offers. SIFs are available directly from each school and their website. They must be returned to the school or to the address provided by the school by the specified deadline, which may differ between schools.

The following schools require SIFs to be completed in order to process applications. SIFs can only be considered if they have a direct bearing on oversubscription criteria or for the purpose of selection by aptitude or ability.

Schools must still accept applications without a completed SIF as all schools have to consider 'other applicants'.

*SIF only required if applying for a place under the aptitude criterion.

The following school operates a fair banding system to allocate places. The places within each band are based on year 6 students taking a Non Verbal Reasoning Test (NVRT).

  • Swakeleys School for girls

Note: This deadline has now passed.

Please visit the schools individual website for supplementary forms and deadline dates.
