Admissions Process

If you wish to benefit from the excellent teaching, enriching opportunities and supportive community that Glyn School offers, we invite you to make an application.

Students are encouraged to submit their option choices through the online system. Should you wish to use a paper based ‘Options Form’, these are available from Student Reception upon request. All applications for September 2017 must be submitted by Monday 28 November 2016.

Students will be invited in to school to discuss their option choices and future plans between January and February 2017.

Following the receipt of applications, we build and finalise option blocks and will send initial offer letters to students by Wednesday 1 March 2017.

Students will need to reply to confirm whether they are accepting the place or not by Friday 18 March 2017. The reply also enables students to indicate any option changes they wish to make.

Students will be invited in to school to attend the induction days on Monday 26 and Tuesday 27 June 2017. We strongly recommend that students attend these so that they can experience the courses they are intending to study and, if necessary, make any option changes before the start of the term.

Final enrolment takes place on Thursday 24 August 2017 for internal students and on Friday 25 August 2017 for external students. External students will need to bring copies of their GCSE results with them to enrol on to courses.
