The Registrar is happy to discuss with parents a any decision not to offer a place to a candidate and b the admissions policy in general. If parents still have concerns they may write to the Headmaster requesting a meeting. St Leonards Junior School Years 1-7 Children seeking entry are normally required to spend either a morning or afternoon in school to enable teaching staff to assess their abilities in reading language and numbers as well as their social skills. This helps to establish the correct level of entry for each child. Those wishing to enter Years 4 7 are also given formal entrance tests in English and Maths either during the day in school or at some other agreed time. Any support for learning issue highlighted is investigated further using the same procedures as those where an additional support need is already known see later. St Leonards Senior School Years 8 9 10 and Pre-IB Entry is by means of St Leonards Entrance Examination or Common Entrance. Students seeking entry are also recommended to spend a day in school. This helps to establish the correct level of entry for each student. Entrance Examinations are held at individually arranged times. Candidates sit papers in English and Maths. Any support for learning issue highlighted by these papers or otherwise is investigated further using the same procedures as those where an additional support need is already known see later. St Leonards Sixth Form Students entering the Lower Sixth Form IB1Year 12 are usually expected to have gained At least GCSE Grade B for Higher Level subjects and grade C for Standard Level subjects or the SQA National 5 equivalent An acceptable international equivalent to those mentioned above.

St Leonards Useful Information 201516 General Admissions Procedure 4 ADMISSIONS PROCEDURE FOR STUDENTS WITH KNOWN SPECIFIC LEARNING NEEDS Where a child has a known specific learning need previous psychological assessments IEPsCSPs and school reports will be studied carefully in conjunction with the entrance tests taken. Where appropriate further assessment will be carried out to ensure that such prospective students are not disadvantaged by a disability provided the criteria for admission are sustained. The admissions procedure is as follows whether or not a child has already been formally registered for entry Where the school deems it necessary the child will spend a day with the relevant Year Group for an informal assessment of how they cope with the work of the class and fit in with the other students. The Head of Support for Learning will meet with the child during the course of the day and carry out any informal assessments appropriate to this stage in the admissions process. Parents may be asked to provide samples of the books usedwork done by the child for the Head of Support for Learning and other appropriate members of staff to review. The Head of Support for LearningHead of SchoolHead of Year Group will provide the Registrar with a report in writing for discussion with the Headmaster. Parents will then be invited to a meeting with the RegistrarHead of Support for Learning Headmaster to discuss the outcome. This may be necessary only if the informal assessment indicates a possible need for a level of support greater than the school can provide or where further discussion is desirable following review of all the information gathered to date. If parents wish to proceed with registration after informal assessment a report will be requested from the childs current school and a date set for formal entrance tests if appropriate. Once the entrance tests have been marked comments on the tests and a recommendation as to the level of support required by the child will be made by the Head of Support for Learning taking into account the entrance tests and all other oral and written evidence gathered during the admissions process. Parents will again be invited to a meeting to discuss the outcome. At this stage an offer of a place in school may or may not be made.

In such cases as well as giving the school the required notice the pupil will contractually have left the school and their place will be offered to the next pupil on the waiting list. At the Schools discretion it may be possible to retain the pupils place. However the parents of the child would be required to pay a retainer fee to St Leonards. This fee would be at the level of the fees they would have paid had they remained a pupil inclusive of any remissions they would receive. Any younger siblings would also retain any remissions they receive as if the absent sibling was still in attendance. In short the original contract with the School remains in force. IB Examination Fees IB students pay a registration fee to the IBO of 91. There is then a subsequent examination fee of 64 per subject inc TOK and the extended essay. Postage costs for the examinations are also covered by the student at up to 100 dependent on examination marking location. This can mean additional costs of up to 575 per student.

GCSE Examination Fees While there is no overall registration fee for GCSE there is a charge for each examination students take. The figure varies according to the subject but would typically range from 27 to 47.50 per subject taken. Therefore a students GCSE examination costs could total up to 380. A small amount of this will be charged during the spring term of Year 10 to cover early modules and the remainder will be charged in the spring term of Pre-IB. The fees given above for the IB and GCSE Examinations are for the 2015-2016 academic year and are therefore subject to change and are outwith the Schools control.
