Ralph Allen School

The arrangements for allocating year 7 places at Ralph Allen School are determined by B&NES, the Local Authority, and are explained in its booklet A Secondary School for your Child in Bath & North East Somerset which is available for all parents/carers with a child in the final year of primary school in Bath and North East Somerset.

Ralph Allen School caters for boys and girls, aged 11-18.

While parents have the right to choose a preferred school, the number of places available at that school may limit the choice. If a school is over-subscribed the Local Authority admissions team has to apply criteria, listed in order of priority, when allocating places.

Please note that applications for Ralph Allen School should be made through the family's home local education authority.

Late applications will be considered, together with any applicants who are refused a preference and have lodged an appeal, after all applications that have been received in time have been dealt with.
