Declaration


I/we understand that this completed application form enters my child for the Entrance Assessment at BGS.

I/we confirm that I/we have provided details of all those with parental responsibility for the child named in this application.

I/we have informed our present school of this application for a place at BGS, and understand that you will approach them for a confidential reference in support of this application prior to the exam date. 

Offers of places are subject to availability and the admissions requirements of BGS at the time offers are made. A copy of BGS’s Terms and Conditions will be supplied on request. 

The information will be used by BGS during the admissions process in order to manage your application. We may, for example, ask for information about other schools to which you are applying as they may hold their entrance examinations on the same days as ours. In addition, we may contact other people with parental responsibility to check that they consent to your child joining the School. Information will be used to ensure that we have made all the reasonable adjustments for your child when they visit BGS or during any entrance examinations. We may share your information with credit reference agencies. 

If your child is not offered a place, or you do not accept the offer of a place, we will only retain this information for as long as we need to. Unless there are exceptional circumstances, information will be kept for a year after the end of the admissions process. For more information about how BGS will use your information, and your child’s information, please see our pupil privacy notice and parent privacy notice. Both of these are published in the Policies section of our website.
