Out of County Applications for a Year 5 place for September 2015
We understand there is still some confusion over how to make an application for a Year 5 place for next year if you live out of county. We have been in contact with both Central Bedfordshire and Bucks School Admissions Services and this is the outcome.
· You can either apply to Bucks CC on an In Year Transfer Form and ensure you mark this clearly 'For admission to a CBC School in Year 5 for September 2015
· OR apply direct to Central Bedfordshire using the Transfer to Middle Application Form as we are heading into December and the closing date is fast approaching.
Whichever method you use, if you would like to make contact with Jenny Robinson, PA to the Headteacher at Linslade, once you have submitted your application, we will do all we can to track your application. If you encounter any difficulties whatsoever, please contact Jenny who will do her best to help.
Welcome to Linslade School
We are a thriving academy, delivering a broad curriculum, wide range of extra curricular activities and challenging expectations to our motivated, well behaved pupils.
We hold a traditional belief in the importance of strong values: our children are expected to be polite, considerate, self motivated and hard working. At the same time, we offer an innovative curriculum which seeks to develop the whole child, leading to high rates of progress and strong levels of achievement. We place a focus on sports (we hold specialist status in sport), drama, arts and music in order to motivate children in all aspects of school, especially in their academic studies. This philosophy, soundly grounded in research and successful experience, is supported by the extensive use of setting by ability and small classes (usually between 16 and 24) to ensure that appropriate challenge can be given to every child. We are firm believers in the importance of competition. Our House System routinely provides pupils with opportunities to compete in activities such as sport, drama, music and art. We also run an extensive fixture list, with matches in a number of sports at all age and ability levels. Residential and day trips, visitors and curriculum enrichment days complete our broad curriculum.
