As a voluntary-aided school, the governors of Bishop Gilpin are responsible for setting the school's admissions criteria, in line with the national Admissions Code 2014, and reviewing these annually.

Faith-based Oversubscription Criteria and Covid-19
The school has applied to the Office of the Schools Adjudicator to vary its admissions arrangements for the school year 2021/2022 to take account of the effects of the Covid 19 pandemic on families’ ability to attend worship. We are currently awaiting the Adjudicator’s decision and will update these pages as soon as the decision is published.
Our Admissions Policy (note 6) explicitly gives church ministers the discretion to take into account unavoidable circumstances which have prevented parents’/carers’ attendance at worship (and have prevented their active involvement in the work and mission of the church, if applicable), when considering whether the faith-based oversubscription criteria have been met.
If you have any questions, please contact our Admissions Officer on 020 8946 6666 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
