Backwell School is a popular school and has been oversubscribed for a number of years.  The maximum intake for Year 7 in 2018 is 270 students and places will be allocated as per the oversubscription criteria detailed in our Admission Arrangements.  Our first geographical area (catchment area) is also outlined in this document, however parents living outside of this area are also welcome to apply.

Places arising 'in-year' are rare and so parents interested in gaining a place for their child, outside of the Year 7 intake, should telephone the school to find out if a place is available.
