Head Girl - Georgie Van Dyke

Throughout my seven years at Spalding High School I have always been encouraged to achieve my very best, whilst receiving fantastic support and guidance along the way. Since the very start of year 7, I have admired the sense of community and team-spirit that we have within school and have always felt so comfortable in the school’s welcoming environment. Spalding High School has really allowed me to thrive both academically and socially, preparing me for all aspects of life beyond the Sixth Form.


Having only joined the High at sixth form, I was instantly made to feel welcome.  I’ve made amazing friends, and the support you receive from staff is second to none’.

‘I’ve got so much independence at the High School, but the staff are always there to give guidance and advice.’

‘As a new student, the friendly and welcoming atmosphere has made the transition so much easier.’

‘The staff are really supportive and helpful; you can talk to them about anything.’

‘The opportunity to become part of a committee has helped me to develop many skills including teamwork and organisation.’

‘The opportunity to get involved in extra curricular activities such as Duke of Edinburgh gold, Young Enterprise and World Challenge has been invaluable.’

‘I would recommend Spalding High 6th form to anyone – these past two years have been so fulfilling.’

Oversubscription Criteria

In accordance with the 1996 Education Act the allocation of school places for children with a Statement of Special Educational Needs or an Education, Health and Care Plan will take place first.  Remaining places will be allocated in accordance with the policy.

The oversubscription criteria are listed in the order we apply them.  Words marked with a number, for example 1, 2 and 3 are explainded separately in the definition and notes section of our Whole School Admissions Policy available on the School  website.  This policy also has information on appeals, fraudulent or misleading applications, children of UK service personnel and admission of children outside their normal age group.

If there are more applicants than places available then applicants will be offered places in the following order:

*  The child is in the care of the local authority or had previously been in care (1).

*  The grade achieved in the relevant subject or subjects, or for those subjects not available at GCSE, a relevant subject specified in the School's sixth form brochure.  The applicant with the higher grade will have priority.

*  The average points score achieved across all GCSE subjects taken by the applicant.  The applicant with the higher score will have priority.

*  Driving distance (2) from home to school, with the applicant living nearer to the school having priority.  This would be the tie-breaker if necessary; in the event of a tie on distance the school can offer extra place(s).

The Headmistress will consider all applications carefully and reserves the right to apply professional judgement to individual cases where students may fall short of a subject specific entry requirement.
