© These subjects are delivered in collaboration with KEVI Aston, KEVI Handsworth Girls and KEVI Handsworth Wood Girls Schools, so lessons may be at those venues and/or have students from those schools.
- Conditional offers are not a guarantee of a place, nor a guarantee that the subjects that have been selected by a candidate will be the subjects undertaken at A-level. Subjects to be studied are determined by exam results and availability of spaces.
- The school and its governors reserve the right to reduce curriculum time allocated to a specific course due to low uptake of students, and also to withdraw a course due to an extremely low uptake of students.
- In the event of over-subscription preference will be given to looked-after children or previously looked-after children; then GCSE points scores, and then those who live nearest to the school (according to the straight-line distance between home and school).
