As an Academy, Queen Elizabeth's School is its own admissions authority and each year sets the admissions criteria and number following consultation.
Prospective parents seeking admission after the commencement of Year 9, or to tour the school at any other time should telephone the Headteacher's Personal Assistant.
Children attending schools in the Wimborne pyramid should receive full application details via their Middle Schools. If your child is not in the pyramid, you can obtain this information and the current policy on admissions from our website.
In simple terms, if the school is oversubscribed, priority goes to applications in the following order:
Looked After Children
Older brother or sister at QE
Children living in the school's catchment area
Attendance at feeder Middle Schools
Children of staff newly appointed in order to fill a demonstrable skills shortage
Proximity to the school
Any applicant refused a place has a right of appeal to an independent appeals panel.
