Head Student - Meg Williams

Throughout my seven years at Spalding High School, I’ve seen consistent support and encouragement for all students on their best and worst days. We are pushed to reach higher and go further, not only in education but also beyond school. The school has created an environment where we can thrive, where we can gain the skills to succeed individually and cooperatively. Our achievements are celebrated, and we are constantly given more opportunities to grow. The guidance from staff has aided students in becoming confident and independent sixth formers; ready to face life after 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.
