[Admissions] Secondary Transfer – Supplementary Information Form (SIF)

Supplementary Information Form (SIF) 2016

  • Parents seeking a place for their child at Bushey Meads School in September 2016 are to complete this form (the SIF) as well as Hertfordshire’s Secondary Application Form.* This applies to all parents, including those who already have children at this school. This SIF form must be returned directly to the school by Friday 30th October 2015 at the latest.
  • *Any parents/carers who do not reside in Hertfordshire and wish to apply for a Hertfordshire school are required to use their own LA’s application form, not Hertfordshire’s Secondary Application Form.
  • Failure to complete both forms and return them by the deadline may hinder the consideration of your application. The Governing Body will apply their admission arrangements using the information submitted on the Secondary Application Form, which may result in your application being given a lower priority
  • All applicants are required to take standardised tests (Maths and Verbal Reasoning), with the exception of those currently attending a primary school within the Bushey St James Trust (Little Reddings Primary School) who do not intend applying to other schools within the SW Herts Consortium. Identical tests are taken by applicants for Bushey Meads, Parmiters, Queens, Rickmansworth, St Clement Danes, Watford Grammar School for Boys and Watford Grammar School for Girls. The tests will take place on 5th September 2015. For those unable to attend for religious or medical reasons, an alternative date will be offered.
  • If you wish to apply under the technological aptitude criterion it will be necessary for your child to take an additional test at Bushey Meads School on 19th September 2015 (TBC). (This test is optional whereas ALL applicants are required take the standardised tests – see paragraph above)
