Supplementary information forms

Please note some schools, such as faith schools, require the completion of a supplementary information form (SIF). This is so 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 over subscription 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 considered 'other applicants'.

  • Bishop Ramsey C of E School
  • The Douay Martyrs Catholic School
  • Guru Nanak Sikh Academy
  • The Harefield Academy*
  • Uxbridge High School*

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

Please visit the school's individual website for supplementary forms and deadline dates.

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

Please note that the deadline for completing the form has now passed, if you have any enquiries please contact the school direct.
